Artists of Nigeria charts the development of modern Nigerian art, analyzes work by significant Nigerian artists, and explores art movements within the country and beyond over the past 100 years. Here, the vibrant, often-overlooked accomplishments of Nigerian artists are given the attention they deserve. Among the featured artists are Olowere, whose work is in the collections of the British Museum, the Detroit Institute of Arts, and the Smithsonian Institution; Chike Aniakor, who has a PhD from Indiana University; and Uche Okeke, whose work has been shown at Boston University.
