Osaru Obaseki (b. 1993) is a visual artist from Edo state, Nigeria. A graduate of the University of Port Harcourt with a B.Sc. in Business Management. She started off her artistic practice as a self-taught artist exploring the flow of acrylic on canvas. She is drawn to the co-existence of iconographies and motifs, (which gives a sense of ancient communication and the inception of languages). In 2017, Osaru joined the Nosona studios under the Edo Global Center platform where she gained tutelage, the opportunity and resources to experiment with other mediums particularly sand which is influenced by the rich cultural heritage of Benin Kingdom. In 2018, Osaru was selected to be part of the 2019 RELE Art Foundation Young Contemporaries Exhibition. In 2019, Osaru was selected as one of the Edo based artists for the Re Entanglement exhibition, a collaboration between the Cambridge University, London and Nosona studios –an avenue to engage and interrogate the archives of Northcote .W. Thomas, a British anthropologist who documented the Edo speaking people between 1909-1910. Osaru was part of the BACK TO BASE workshop which was a collaborative effort between the Goethe Institute and RELE Art Foundation. She has been part of several group exhibitions and workshops, some of which are: Women in Art exhibition a collaborative effort between IDDUK and Gaia Women Club in Lagos, IDesign Art, Lagos. NAFEST EDO collaboration with EDO GLOBAL ART CENTRE. ARTLOVE Expo, Lagos, Harmattan workshop with Bruce Onobrakpeya Foundation, Presentation and Representation workshop with ANGELS AND MUSE, Lagos. Osaru currently creates using a combination of Sand and Acrylic as a way of synergize two different civilizations – the ancient and the modern.
