Bob-Nosa is a fine art graduate of Auchi Polytechnic. The multidisciplinary artist works out of the Protest Art Studio, a fitting designation given the tenor of his practice: a relentless condemnation of the inhumanity of social and political systems that render people victims. The self-described art activist belongs to a protest subculture devoted to using art as a catalyst for change. His paintings, which run the gamut from abstract to representational, are distinguished by intense primary colours applied in large expressive strokes, and frequently include collaged images and found material. Surfaces are scratched with written texts and aerosol paint is roughly sprayed over and across painted forms. Bob-Nosa’s work has been the subject of solo exhibitions in Spain, Argentina and Lagos.
For ART X Lagos 2019, he has created a new series of powerful, satirical comments on inhumanity as borne by the individual in a socially decaying system.
