Obiora Ekeanozie

About

Obiora studied at and graduated from the Nnamdi Azikwe university in Awka. A specialist in paintings, he operates out of his private studio in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital city. Obiora began painting when he was a young boy, translating everything in his environment to visuals on paper. It was not until his teen years that he was significantly inspired to pursue a life in the arts. As a young artist, Obiora’s passion and style were initially received with mixed emotions from family and friends, but he soon found his footing and has featured in several exhibitions around Nigeria. His work is strongly collected across Africa.                

Obiora’s pieces feature a mix of colors that on their own tell a story. His work is able to display specific emotions through contrast and tone and he uses this to inspire thoughts from seemingly candid objects, poses.
