In his latest installation, The Journey Mercies, Nwadiogbu critically addresses the issue of migration, inviting you to embrace new perspectives. Using personified cardboard boxes as vivid metaphors of black migrants, he plays around with the parcels' disposable nature, underlining the dehumanisation process at work in the migration politics.


Ken Nwadiogbu is a self-taught multidisciplinary artist based in Lagos, Nigeria. A trained civil engineer, he soon pivoted to fine art, embracing hyperrealism and charcoal drawing before expanding his creative horizon to more conceptual works and a more comprehensive array of techniques, including acrylic painting, sculpture, and installation. On Nwadiogbu’s large canvases, stories superimpose themselves in multiple layers.
