ARTISTTONY NSOFOR

Though quite recognized for his use of “scribbles and scratches” as part his contemporary expression, His work is firmly driven by the subconscious and often the story of the work becomes clear to him when he steps back to observe where his process has led him.

Tony Nsofor (born 1973) studied Fine Arts at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, and majored in painting. As a student in Nsukka, Tony worked as a studio assistant for Professor Obiora Udechukwu, an experience which made a discernible impact on his artistic journey.

He has said that the emphasis on the study of iconographical Uli symbolism, which Nsukka University is known for, still determines his artistic process today. Though quite recognized for his use of “scribbles and scratches” as part his contemporary expression, His work is firmly driven by the subconscious and often the story of the work becomes clear to him when he steps back to observe where his process has led him.
He has participated in several solo and group exhibitions, both in Nigeria and beyond
