Contemporary artist Victor Ekpuk is set to hold Artist Talk this October. The Nigerian-born contemporary artist based in Washington, DC came to prominence through his paintings and drawings which reflect indigenous African philosophies of the Nsibidi and uli art forms.
Ekpuk reimagines graphic symbols from diverse cultures to form a personal style of mark making that results in the interplay of art and writing.
His work frequently explores the human condition in society, drawing upon a wide spectrum of meaning that is rooted in African and global contemporary art discourses. Victor Ekpuk is currently completing a four-month residency with the Arthouse Foundation.
Venue: Renault, 43B Akin Adeola Street Victoria Island, Lagos
