About the artist

John Madu

Nigerian artist John Madu, born in 1983, is best known for his figurative and symbolic paintings. Madu’s work is highly symbolic, pulling influences from pop culture, African history, art history, along with his own personal experiences and recollections. His work examines the complex nature of individual identity through his figurative portraits. Madu plays with framing his subjects through bringing them in and out of focus using bright splashes of color. While the artist works across a variety of mediums, including collage, ink, and mixed media, he is known for his work with acrylics and oil paints. Madu experiments with texture in his paintings as well, incorporating burlap and other fabrics into his works.

Madu recently had his first solo exhibition in November 2021 at Zidoun-Bossuyt Gallery in Luxembourg.
