Lucille Ozienkhaye aged 23, is a multidisciplinary artist who focuses on interpreting the world through their Nigerian feminist eyes. They have navigated many artistic outlets in their practice including writing, photography, tattooing, directing and Web producing. As a self-taught abstract painter, they have explored multiple styles in their 18 years of practice through the use of acrylic. They’ve now settled on manipulating the black form through the stark use of black shades against bright colors on canvas and wood. They value this approach because it represents how everyday we engage with a distorted perspective of a black experience. In 2015 they challenged themself to paint 20 murals by the age of 17, they succeeded in this with all of them located within the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja. At 18 they organized an all-inclusive art exhibition called Sabi (meaning to know in pidgin) where they sponsored 20 Nigerian artists with space to encourage the rise of neo-Afrocentric art.
