Conversations are a series of conceptual images exploring the emotional and psychological trauma of gender violence in African societies. The series were created in response to stories of women in the UK that had undergone cultural based gender violence like female genitalia mutilation, breast ironing, child marriage.
The series was created to foster conversations on cultural identity, womanhood and patriarchal structures.

I am a Nigerian visual artist based in London who expresses himself through photography and mixed media.
My work work is an expression of my journey and experiences as a Nigerian and a Brit. These two cultures inform the narratives in my work which straddles between fantasy and reality.
