Anthony Azekwoh

AA Studios

Anthony Azekwoh (b. 2000) is a contemporary artist and author based in Lagos, Nigeria.

Technology is an instrumental part of his practice, as he believes it has been a catalyst for Africans especially to find their creative voices and pursue careers in the arts that can be looked upon with stigma.

Anthony is currently exploring a new medium-sculpting, which has allowed him to explore the concept of immortalisation and platforming. By focusing this aspect of his practice on representing various historical figures and facets of Nigerian culture, Anthony manages to celebrate revered elements of the Nigerian identity and showcase his home to the world, as he sees it through his eyes.
