|This is a kind of smart art, with many strong visual metaphors like the clashing religions on the table. This Nigerian artist combines the happy marriage with her white husband with some serious political problems; day-to-day comfy life, and brutal Nigerian dictators – very personal and very global. All these complicated figurative stories are drawn from memory, using acetone-transfers of small photographic images, acrylic, and commemorative fabric. Art Njideka Akunyili Crosby
