A representation of her own identity
'My imagination and past experiences come through as I create colourful escapes.'
A photo-series between Nwaka Okparaeke & collaborator Elfreda Dali. In this collection the concept of uncovering the truth behind conspiracies is explored. In this image two women are poised perfectly, adorned in traditional clothing grasping a bouquet of flowers.
Light & Dark
Nwaka's artwork is in a league of it's own, setting new levels & contributing to the emerging Afro-Surrealism movement, as she employs vivid colours, contrast, and emotion to construct new worlds celebrating the Black experience.
Her work explores a deeper level to connect and represent unique perspectives. In this image two men gaze as another man somersaults in the sky. This results in a fantastical and transcendental visual world which truly has no limits.
Making the surreal real
Nwaka is drawn to themes of peace, serenity, love and freedom and how these fundamental elements of life connect every experience.
Bold & Beautiful In Utopian Worlds
Nwaka Okparaeke’s work is distinctive for their dazzling, dreamy sense of colour and light. They empower her subjects as they unapologetically inhabit a utopian world.
