What do you stand for? What does that say about you? For me, Neo Africa is a cause worth standing for, and it is also the inspiration behind my current work. In this piece, I have combined both urban (the street-style clothing) and traditional (the mask) cultures in order to reflect the Nigeria of today, a Nigeria the history of which has produced me as an artist and the forward-moving nature of which continues to influence me every single day. I have also taken a fresh look at the Mask through the use of color, textures and style of production. I have worked with the sign of the pledge – which relates to “Stand for Something,” the title of the piece.
The Neo Africa movement is one that is near and dear to my heart, connecting back to these questions I ask myself again and again. What is African art? Who gets to define it? What are its limits? And where is it going?
