Mayowa Nwadike

Mayowa Nwadike is a self-taught Nigerian artist working primarily in mixed media, utilizing acrylic and charcoal to create his sizable works. Focusing predominantly on realism, with elements of abstraction, his works are descriptive but not narrative, inspired by African stories and symbolism. Through his work, Nwadike pushes back on gender norms and toxic masculinity, provoking the viewer to consider their relationship to social issues. He hopes his works help men embrace their femininity.

Nwadike’s work has been exhibited in numerous galleries and museums, including the Museum of Science & Industry in Chicago, the African American Museum in Dallas, and The Holy Art Gallery in London, UK.
