Ken Nwadiogbu (b. 1994, Lagos, Nigeria)
Ignited by Trompe L’oeil, self-taught Nwadiogbu submerged himself in technique and skill in order to rise as a prominent artist in the Nigerian Hyperrealist movement. Nwadiogbu is constantly revitalising his practice by challenging modes of Black representation. He received his degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering from the University of Lagos, Nigeria and continues to live and works as a full-time artist in Lagos, Nigeria. Recent exhibitions include CONTEMPOREALISM, The Brick Lane Gallery, London (2019, solo); PRIZM INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR, Curated by Retro Africa Gallery, Miami (2020, group), THE COOKOUT: KINFOLK AND OTHER INTIMACIES, Curated by MoCADA Museum, NY (2020, group), MONIKER INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR, Curated by Premier Art Solutions, Chelsea, London (2019, group). Nwadiogbu has been featured on CNN, BBC, and in Juxtapoz, Guardian, Wired, and Afro Punk.
