Victor Ekpuk is a Nigerian-born artist who now lives in Washington, D.C. His art, which began as an exploration of Nsibidi ideographic/logographic scripts/symbols from southeastern Nigeria, has evolved to embrace a wider spectrum of meaning that includes contemporary African and Global discourses.
The artist states: “The subject matter of my work deals with the human condition explained through themes that are both universal and specific: family, gender, politics, culture and identity.”
