Nsibidi- the philosophy where sign systems are used to convey ideas. Nigerian artist, Victor Ekpuk uses symbols from traditional African writing system, such as nsibidi, along with designs he coins and others have gathered from the world around him to create his artwork. The script that results from this is meant to create a feeling and understanding of the human experience. One symbol in a painting or drawing can represent a concept and make a statement; many symbols can form a narrative about life in the contemporary world.
Victor's exhibition, Drawing Memories, opens at the Turchin Center on April 5 during the Spring Exhibition Celebration from 7-9 p.m.
