Odogwu is one of Nigeria’s finest contemporary artists and works entirely in metal. His mastery over his chosen medium conceals the difficulties involved in controlling its vitality, its resistance and demands. The aesthetics of Odogwu’s artistic output belies the complex themes and meanings. Fidelis Odogwu’s broad oeuvre encompasses a calm, academic realism, and the expressive fluidity of classical African sculpture, known for its architectonic volumes.
