♕Tip of the Day: Meet Obinna Makata…♕


Obinna Makata

Nigeria

Makata’s collages reflect a clash of traditional artistic practices and contemporary influences, of the figurative and the abstract, and of the lighthearted and the threatening. Obinna Makata’s artistic approach confronts the viewer to question their definition of contemporary African art, and, in the process, forces an understanding of art made on the Continent out of a solely assimilative paradigm and one that could proudly and distinctly be defined as “African”.

Obinana Makata is currently having her first solo exihition “Metahistories” in Ikoyi, Lagos. See Facebook Page
