Dennis Osadebe Takes Us Into The Life of A Professional Artist on the Made in Nigeria Podcast

Posted on

Dennis Osadebe is the most iconic young Nigerian artist of his generation. His ability to mend the future with the past and present while combining both local and foreign pop culture references highlight his desire to create art which, though rooted in Nigeria, has a global outlook. Osadebe is credited for developing the cultural movement called ‘Neo-Africa.’ This is his way of rebelling against ‘African Art’, a term he considers limiting and lazy.

Dennis Osadebe created a new series of masked sculptures for a project titled “Stand for Something.”
