Chukwuemeka Bosah is a graduate of both the University of Nigeria and City College of the City University of New York. A long time student and observer of contemporary art around the world and a collector, he lives and works around the world spending time in North America, Africa and Europe.George Edozie studied Art at the University of Benin majoring in painting. A widely collected artist, he has three solo exhibitions to his credit and has been a part of forty one group exhibitions inside and outside Nigeria. George resides and works in Lagos, Nigeria.From the Inside Flap:
In the annals of Nigerian art, perhaps nothing has succeeded more in historicizing critical epochs than the simple act of documentation. Dating back to The Nigerian Teacher and Nigeria Magazine, writing about the contemporaneity of Nigerian art has proven to be a form of empowerment. This is what Chukwuemeka Bosah and George Edozie have valiantly attempted in this book. The brief essays that foreground the visual images are, just as the artworks themselves, a good mix: at once dated, fresh, and critical—precisely the ingredients that make the book provocative. This is a book that packs enough power for diverse populations—from producers to consumers; from students to scholars of contemporary Nigerian art; and from an international audience to home-grown critics. It is an addition to the growing volume on a vibrant cultural division, especially as Nigeria turns 50.
