Makata uses fabric as a metaphor for cultural identity and evolving social values. His works create narrative associations that deal with quotidian issues in contemporary Nigerian society, including visa queues, abortions, and crowded work environments. Crudely sketched with ink and acrylic, the artist combines scraps of Ankara fabric to form the bodies and backgrounds of his figures.
