Meet Ken Nwadiogbu, a figurative hyper-realist artist on Hands Show

Published

on

On this week’s edition of Hands,  Anttention Media had a chit-chat with Ken Nwadiogbu. He is a Nigerian Multidisciplinary Artist whose practice is primarily centered around hyper-realistic drawings and works on paper.

Nwadiogbu was born in Lagos, Nigeria and holds a B.Sc in Civil and Environmental Engineering from the University of Lagos, Nigeria. His art career started in the university, and with no formal training, has pushed him to become one of the most interesting young contemporary artists from Nigeria, creating works that question life- calling out some of the problems and becoming very grounded in human consciousness.

The desire to change his society and the way people think is what drives him to create art every day.  Ken believes that the society speaks and the voice inspires his art, which evaluates, interrogates
and challenges socio-political structures and issues within the society. In his reply to the voice from the society, he is able to inspire one or two people to also re-evaluate their socio-political structures
as we know it. Gender equality, African cultures, and Black power are a few aspects of his current research and artistic practice. 

In 2016, Ken was featured at Omenka Gallery’s Insanity exhibition, sponsored by Frot Foundation, in Lagos, Nigeria. He has been involved with more group exhibitions ever since, including the TMC’s It’s Not Furniture, curated by Winifred Okpapi, the Artyrama’s group exhibition curated by Mr Jess Castellote, some international group exhibitions and fairs such as the Moniker Art Fair, sponsored by Creative Debuts, in Brooklyn, NYC, the Anti-Trump show organized in UK among many others.

He has been televised and publicized on different local and international platforms like Guardian Life, Anttention Media, Tush Magazine, WIRED Magazine, Candid Magazine, Bored Panda, BBC, CNN, and more. He co-founded Artists Connect NG, the largest Nigerian artist gathering that took place at Lekki Leisure Lake, in Lagos, Nigeria.

To Ken, Art is indeed timeless, it is his solace and hiding place, a safe haven he has found to be devoid of restrictions, boxes and boundaries. He currently lives and works in Lagos, Nigeria.

This list is surely going to blow your mind. Here are the awesome, are they awesome? No.. Let me take that again. Here are the extremely, out-of-the-world things Saudi princes have spent money on.

When money is just a footnote

When money is just a footnote

“Money can’t buy you love” but it can surely buy a royal life.

Well, some people take luxury to a whole new level.

Take a look

It’s a gold car

Buying a Lamborghini is itself a big deal, but what about a gold plated beast in your garage?

Saudi billionaire Turki Bin Abdullah has a fleet of cars – Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe, Mercedes jeep, Lamborghini Aventador SuperVeloce and gold Bentley.

All of the exotic motors are wrapped in gold vinyl, with a model for every occasion.

Buying a luxurious Mercedes Benz is not enough for Prince Al Talal bin Abdulaziz, so he crusted some diamond all over the car for his 38th birthday.

You read it right, that’s a diamond studded car.

Exotic pets

Exotic pets

Having a cat or dog as a pet is too mainstream, no? So, this guy has a pet cheetah.
