Duke Asidere is one of Nigeria's most celebrated contemporary artists with a keen following internationally and in his native Nigeria. He expresses himself boldly through a wide variety of mediums including pencil work, oil, acrylic, pastels and transparencies. Inspired by the everyday drama of human lives surrounding him, Asidere loves to use thick brush strokes to depict women and their invaluable role in society. His masterpieces are a fresh perspective of Africa, which have underlining political statements and are infused by his use of colour and form.
