Victor Ekpuk was born in Nigeria; he has a Bachelor of Arts degree from University of Ife, Nigeria, where he studied painting. His art is inspired by traditional African arts, especially 'Nsibidi', an ancient art of communication that uses symbols to convey concepts. In exploring this ancient form of literacy, Ekpuk uses the age-old symbols and forms as well as his own stylized images and signs to create art that communicates contemporary experiences. His paintings have been shown in galleries in Nigeria, Europe and United State of America. Among such venues are: "Africus" Johannesburg Biennale, South Africa, 1995; Susquehanna Museum of Contemporary Art, Pennsylvania, USA, 2002, New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York City, USA, 2004, and Barbican Gallery, London 2004. Currently, some of his paintings are on loan to the Smithsonian Institution, National Museum of African Art, pending an upcoming travelling exhibition. Ekpuk's drawings and illustrations have been published in several journals including Daily Times, a major newspaper in Nigeria. UNICEF has also published his paintings as greeting cards.
