It has been over two months since the debut of my first multimedia installation took place at White Space in Ikoyi, Lagos and the experience still feels unreal. One minute you are neck deep in planning and the next you are uninstalling and preparing for the next city. Here are some photo highlights from the […]
It would be my absolute pleasure to invite you to my first ever mixed media installation “Dirty Laundry” supported by Ford Foundation. This installation is an immersive experience interconnecting personal narratives, histories, experiences, and imaginaries as a form of catharsis for me and the viewers. Featuring poems screen printed on canvas hanging from laundry lines, […]
“Reclaiming the Tongue” is a video series curated by journalist and poet, Wana Udobang. For the series, Wana enlisted the help of prolific food bloggers and scholars, Ozoz Sokoh (Kitchen Butterfly), Neema Syovata (Modern African Table) and Iquo Ukoh (1Q Food Platter), to explore the complex ways in which history, geography, memory, colonization, relationships and more, become part of a dish’s recipe.
Having spent the last three decades exploring the built environment, I am now fascinated with new explorations in nature. Within nature I find spirituality, a peaceful serenity, brightness and colour and a diversity that goes beyond identity.

Museums are always good stops! The same is true in Las Vegas, where if you’re looking for a classy, vintage experience instead of a raucous poolside party during the day, there are actually some excellent options.

Organized almost more like a high-end shop than a show gallery, it houses sculptures, paintings, comic book art, and works from Dalí and Picasso.

No anchor, no boat, no life jacket
You go in head first
And never stop moving
The water will feast on your fear
But till you get to the other side
You never stop moving
Working with lines and motifs requires a certain type of flexibility, it’s all mental exercise. I love the challenge of not knowing if the line or motif I’m going to create will connect to the next line after it. I’ll say that I have a special connection with lines, it shows me that everything is connected, one way or the other, it also applies to my life
When it comes to culture and the arts, you won’t find pieces more unique than the ones located in Southeast Asia. Not only do they reflect the culture of the region, but since Southeast Asians are also particular about social and political contexts — largely due to the hardships experienced by its locals throughout ancient and modern […]
Havana had always been my dream city to visit and it was everything that it promised. From riding in vintage cars and dancing to Salsa in the streets to lazying on the beach while sipping on delicious rum and just being immersed in so much history. But one of my highlights was a visit to […]
