Adjani Okpu-Egbe has established a unique style of raw expressive painting. The precise use of discarded materials and an uninhibited application of colour sensitively convey his thought processes and complex narratives. Deriving from the ancient spirit world of African ritual imagery, Okpu-Egbe’s subjects conjoin with a more subjective and autobiographical account as an African artist living in London. These intimate paintings display an undeniable rawness of emotion and human behaviour, casting insight into his unusual life and practice. Okpu-Egbe studied History and Archaeology at the University of Buea in Buea, Cameroon, prior to enrolling in the British Army where he served for five years until he was discharged. Okpu-Egbe’s works have been acquired by several private and public collections and have been exhibited largely in London, as well as wider afield.
