Notes


About 

Ofunne Azinge is a Nigerian – British painter based in Manchester, United Kingdom. 
Her work was previously exhibited at the Royal Academy of Arts in London. Ofunne’s work primarily focuses on the history of post-colonialism in Nigeria and its effects on black men across the diaspora and black masculinity in painting. Born in Nigeria 1998 and moving to England at the age of 5 after being adopted, Ofunne’s work draws from various aspects of her life including the socio-political effects of migration, nostalgia and the complexities of her upbringing. Her large-scale paintings combine the use of her unique image transfer method, figures painted in a mixture of black/blue/purple hues, compilations of symbols from various generations draw the attention of a wide range of audiences to experience her work.
