NIGERIA. Nigerian artist Victor Ekpuk lands in Virginia
09/09/2011 14:43:40

Award-winning Nigerian artist Victor Ekpuk explores the relationships, challenges and responses to changes that characterize the human condition, in his latest exhibition Drawing Metaphors at The Sawhill Gallery, Virginia. Unique to Ekpuk's art is his use of nsibidi, an indigenous African system of writing that employs graphic signs and code to convey concepts. In his compositions, Ekpuk combines these nsibidi signs with contemporary symbols and invented pseudo-writings that evoke the idea of writing, where legibility and illegibility become metaphors.
