Victor Ehikhamenor


About

Ehikhamenor is a multi-faceted artist whose practice encompasses painting, drawing, photography, sculpture and installation, as well as unique perforated works on paper. He draws inspiration from the dual aesthetic and spiritual traditions which infused his upbringing, using imagery and symbolism from both Edo traditional religion and Catholicism.
In 2018, Ehikhamenor undertook a four-week residency with Art Dubai Art Fair as part of a solo project entitled Cartographers of Dreams. In 2017, he was one of four artists chosen to exhibit as part of the first Nigerian Pavilion at the 57th Venice Biennale. His work has also been included in numerous group exhibitions and other biennales, including the 5th Mediations Biennale in Poznan, Poland (2016), the 12th Dakā€™art Biennale in Dakar, Senegal (2016), Biennale Jogja XIII, Indonesia (2015).
He has received fellowships from organisations such as the Rockefeller Foundation (USA, 2016), the Nirox Foundation (South Africa, 2016) and the Norman Mailer Centre (USA, 2014).
