Maureen Uzoh (b. 1997, Delta State, Nigeria) is a multidisciplinary artist creating narrative-driven masterpieces that come in form of drawings on paper or canvas. Her works profile people while trying to understand why they do what they do, in turn, interrogating the society and it’s effect on these people. She shows her feministic aspect by mostly using female figures in her works.
Maureen earned a B.Sc. in Sociology from Delta State University, Nigeria. Her education has its print on her narratives, trying to disassemble people and the society they live in. Her art interest stirred up in high school, and she has since then, worked her way to be a self-taught visual artist.
An interesting feature of Maureen’s works will be her brilliant use of different media, and the striking nature of her TV heads; all trying to play a part in the interrogating narrative she portrays. Maureen Uzoh is constantly working towards changing the world, one art at a time. She lives and works in Lagos, Nigeria.
