British-Nigerian artist (b.1983) London. The framework of his practice is structured around the exploration of the Human Condition.
Primarily using photography, text, archives and everyday objects the artist uses methods of appropriation and recontextualisation to make art that comments on the social, political and the autobiographical. Personal experiences and general observations form the basis of his work exploring recurring themes around the notion of family, migration, identity and popular culture.
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 in 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 and was funded by the British Council 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.
