Bob-Nosa Uwagboe – Ethiopia

nbh 013Bob-Nosa’s paintings are a testament to his voice. His works have shocked some viewers and his almost naïve but thought-provoking figures have been described as radical, unique, and a new kind of primitivism. Many critics have drawn parallels with the conceptual works of famous American artist, Jean Michel Basquiat.

Bob-Nosa Uwagboe was born in the ancient city of Benin in 1974. After graduating from the famous Auchi Polytechnic in Edo State with a Higher National Diploma in 2004, specialising in painting, he went into full time studio practice.

Between 2000 and 2002 he studied with famous Nigerian artist George Olisa Nwadiogbu at his Gon Art Studio in Lagos, where he developed an interest in creating monumental forms and use of colours as a visual strategy for stimulating strong emotion, (for which Nwadiogbu was known.)

Bob-Nosa’s works can be found in many respectable public and private collections, both in Nigeria and abroad, and have been seen in different important exhibitions worldwide.
His most recent exhibitions were at the Art Basel – Miami, Art Fair (USA) in 2012 and at the World Bank Art Exhibition (group) Abuja, 2013.
He currently lives and works in Lagos.
