The New Imperialist, 2020
Digital print on photo paper
60.4 x 85.1 cm / 23.8 x 33.5 in (framed)
«The New Imperialist is inspired by the 'Scramble of Africa conference' in Berlin in 1884. It was created as part of my story The Past is a Path which makes extensive use of archival documents to develop a fictional conversation that loosely highlights the events that led to Cameroon becoming a German colony and, the execution of Rudolf Duala Manga Bell. » Karo Akpokiere

Growing up in Lagos, Nigeria, graphic design and textiles presented through print and electronic media, played a significant role in the formation of my visual identity.
