Patrick Akpojotor is an award-winning multidisciplinary artist working across painting, drawing, printmaking and sculpture. His installation at IN-TER-AC-TIONS – Developing Cities is inspired by the architecture and landscape of growing cities which are often chaotic in nature.
Obinna Okerekeocha is a multimedia artist, designer, music composer and filmmaker. His work at IN-TER-AC-TION – Vignettes of a new reality is a moving showcase about issues of urban and transcontinental migration.
Chuka Ihonor studied Architecture at the University College London. As principal architect, he leads ARG Studio, known for their cutting edge modernist buildings. Their work continues in the tradition of modernist architecture initiated in the early 20th century, and is influenced by the cubist work of Le Corbusier and the later rationalist work of the Italians Giuseppe Terragni and Cesare Cattaneo. Drawing inspiration from other pursuits of the modern movement including painting, sculpture, narrative and furniture design, ARG embraces new materials made possible by existing technology.
