Name: Ken Nwadiogbu
Location: Lagos, Nigeria
Medium: Fine Art
About the artist: 
My works are not just inspired by my ability to create large hyper-realistic works with a charcoal pencil, ink, and recently added collage materials, but also my desperate approach to question life, calling out some of the problems and becoming very grounded in human consciousness; creating constructive discourses that define our everyday living and advocating positive changes in the society.

In my works, I display Black power as a timely, bitting subject in large works with black people of assured attitudes permeating project’s oeuvre. I’m very much fascinated with the presence of the human figure and gaze, hence my works tend to nurse a rare and undiluted expression, letting the subjects in my art communicate via their emotions. Gender equality, African cultures, and Black power are also a few aspects of my current research and artistic practice.
