Angel of Light, 2018
Archival fine art print on paper
73 x 54 cm / 28.7 x 21.3 in (framed)
«The Angel of Light is a satirical take on Nigeria's unfortunate dependence on generators as its primary source of electric power. Taking inspiration from the fallen angels (demons) in the biblical story, the generators are winged machines that hold the promise of giving you all the electricity you need but, at a severe cost to your life and the environment. The print is adapted from the 10ft x 14ft mural of the same name painted in 2012.» 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.
