Obi Chigozie (b. 1997) is a Lagos based artist who creates paintings, drawing and digital illustrations employing oil as her primary medium. She studied Creative arts at the University of Lagos, majoring in painting.
Her works explore colour, figures and portraits which she uses to convey her ideas. As an artist her work is a reflection of how she feels and the issues that she faces personally, along with issues that affect the people around her. When looking at her work, she intends to make the viewers feel the emotion the work carries and the weight of the issues discussed which she believes will help them relate better.
Her work focuses on the human aspect of life and the strive for self-acceptance. She also focuses on the society, the cultural narratives adopted and how it affects people in it, especially females. Her work implores for change in the upbringing of females as well as men. It is a fight for equality and better education of women and men.
Obi draws inspiration from various forms of art (their colours, forms etc), stories and experiences people have gone through, including her's. She has worked with artists like Ejoh Wallace, Segun Adejumo and Duke Asidere.
In 2017 she was selected to participate in the Rasheed Gbadamosi Eko Art Expo as a student exhibitor and exhibited at the Studio Scout: Journey of Self Discovery in 2018. She has participated in other exhibitions since then.
