Lagos, Nigeria, b. 1983

John Madu is a multi-disciplinary artist, whose paintings and art pieces overlap between art and design. Through personal iconographic symbols with allegorical metaphors, texture, indigenous patterns and colours, his paintings instigate the development of new modes of critical practice.

His most recent subject matter dwells along the lines of the effect of globalization and the African identity.  This, he relays through portraiture, figurative symbolism, mixed media, and collage. Madu’s resource materials are eclectic because of influence from pop culture, African art history, music and lived experiences.
