Dennis Osadebe is a Nigerian mixed-media artist best known for his vibrant post-pop style. Osadebe’s style is a unique blend of digital processes which he uses to create canvases that are subsequently layered with acrylic paint. With his characteristic use of flattened planes and bold colours, the artist creates what he refers to as a “NEO” visual style, one that is “modern, bright, expressive and provocative”.

Dennis Osadebe continues to push the envelope with his standout pop-art style. The Nigerian mixed-media artist steps into the realm of sculpture with his new piece, Stand For Something—a declaration of his Neo-Africa movement.”

Stand For Something (2019)

Dennis Osadebe x Unique Board

What do you stand for? What does that say about you?

For me, Neo Africa is a cause worth standing for, and it is also the inspiration behind my current work. In this collaboration with Unique Board, I have combined both urban and traditional cultures in order to reflect the Nigeria of today, a Nigeria the history of which has produced me as an artist and the forward-moving nature of which continues to influence me every single day. I have also taken a fresh look at the Mask through the use of color, textures and style of production.

Furthermore, I have worked with the sign of the pledge – which relates to “Stand for Something,” the title of the piece.

The Neo Africa movement is one that is near and dear to my heart, connecting back to these questions I ask myself again and again. What is African art? Who gets to define it? What are its limits? And where is it going?
