Ndidikanma ( Ndidi) Emefiele’s (pictured) is an unconventional artist. Her spellbinding art consistently engages with the feminine form, exploring and questioning the social, cultural and religious norms about gender roles in society. At 29, no subject is off limits for this young African woman. From reposition the identity of women within the confines of a restrictive society and tradition or culture dictates, to her explorations of female sexual power – she is resolute. Her art is truly speaks volumes as she explains in an exclusive interview with Belinda Otas which you can read in full here.
Ndidi’s Rainbow Series ( below) has been part of the Global African Profiles which has been showing at the Gallery of African Art in London since April. The exhibition concludes 3 July 2016.
