Àsìkò

PHOTOGRAPHY I MIXED MEDIA

Àsikò is a UK-based Nigerian visual artist who expresses his ideas through the medium of photography and mixed media. MTArt Agency represents the artist since 2020. His work is constructed in the narrative that straddles between fantasy and reality as a response to his experiences of identity, culture and heritage.

Each series explores the limits of femininity and masculinity, spirituality and beauty and our relationship with nature and understanding a sense of self in the world we live in. Àsikò’s visual aesthetic comes with adornment and choreographed movement, juxtaposed with atmospheric locations, symbolism and a distinct seductive charge.

Àsikò’s work gained global recognition following his recreation of Marvel’s ‘Black Panther’ movie poster, where he used children as the subjects. The project, commissioned by a prominent London talent and casting agency, addressed the need for representation and diversity in the media. Àsikò’s interest in how cultures visually express themselves led him to present his work in various exhibitions and enter impressive art collections such the Artemizia Foundation. These include the public art projects, exhibitions at the Chicago Art Fair, the NOW Gallery, the South Bank, Rele Gallery, the British Film Institute, or at the SeeMe Art Takes Armoury exhibition.
