I’ve followed Obi’s work, via instagram, for a while and I am saddened that I won’t be able to see her body of work in the flesh (for now) but if you are based in Lagos, Nigeria, then you can! African Artists Foundation is situated in Victoria Island and the Collective Renditions exhibition will be running till the 3rd of May.

Obi is heavily influenced by emotions and she has a keen interest in the human aspect as well as subverting ideas of beauty and increasing self-acceptance. Obi began to paint in her 3rd year of University and has gone on to put in the work in her craft, using materials from oil, watercolour to charcoal.

Collective Renditions is an exhibition worth seeing before it ends, especially if you’re on the look out for new artists to follow. Check out Chigozie Obi on her Instagram @gozie.o
