British-Nigerian artist (b.1983) London. The framework of his practice is structured around the exploration of the Human Condition.
Primarily using photography, text, readymades and public interventions the artist strives to make works that stimulate public debate on issues surrounding contemporary culture. By employing the use of appropriation and the recontextualisation of everyday objects the artist uses personal experiences and general observations to create art that comments on the social, political and the autobiographical.
He has participated in international art fairs and festivals such as FNB Joburg, Vienna Contemporary, Le Recontres d'Arles and Alchemy at the Southbank Centre, in addition to exhibiting in group shows at venues that include: Tate Britain, Cubitt Gallery, New Art Exchange and the National Portrait Gallery, London. His most recent solo show entitled 'Sweet Mother' was held at Omenka Gallery in 2016 with works from the exhibition acquired by the Arts Council England Collection in 2017.
Alongside his solo practice he is one half of the collaborative duo Ohiri + Kassinen with fellow artist and partner Riikka Kassinen. Their studio is based in Greater London where they both live.
