Bruce Onobrakpeya


(Born in 1932, Agbarha-Otor, Nigeria. Lives and works in Lagos, Nigeria.)

Bruce Onobrakpeya has discovered, innovated, and perfected several techniques both in printmaking and relief sculpture that are uniquely Nigerian. Generally, printmaking is a fine art process of producing pictures from a plate that the artist has previously created. Having conceived the idea, the artist then creates an image or images on a plate through any of the printmaking techniques. The images are then transferred onto a paper or any other surface by printing or embossing method.

He has exhibited at the Tate Modern in London, the National Museum of African Art of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C.,the Malmö Konsthall in Malmö, Sweden; The National Gallery of Modern Art, Lagos and the Virtual Museum of Modern Nigerian Art.
