Nkem Odeh

Nkem Odeh-Ifeyinwa, born on March 7, 1994, in Ile-Ife, Osun State, hails from Ika-South Local Government Area of Delta State, Nigeria. He is a licensed artist, having earned his degree from the Department of Fine and Applied Art at Obafemi Awolowo University, known as the Ife School of Art.

Nkem's artistic expressions predominantly fall within the realm of Figurativism. He specializes in mixed media, a versatile approach that involves layering various elements, including newspaper prints, oil paints, acrylics, and pastels, to craft his intricate forms and convey his visual narratives. These narratives often delve into personal life experiences, societal issues, and the inherent beauty of nature.

Currently, Nkem is embarking on a creative exploration that incorporates discarded aluminum foil and other unconventional painting mediums to document and narrate stories based on his unique visual encounters. This venture not only amplifies the importance of recycling and upcycling but also highlights the transformative potential of waste materials in the realm of art.

Nkem Odeh-Ifeyinwa's work serves as a testament to the power of artistic expression in addressing pressing social and environmental concerns while celebrating the inherent beauty found in the world around us.
