Separating herself from recent cliches around contemporary African art, Kiitan Etti’s pushes a strong aesthetic identity through her unwaveringly unique practice. Elaborate yet entertaining comic-like narratives unfold like a production of which Etti is the director. Exploring the lived experience of African women through themes of consumerism, relationships and Nigerian socio-political discourse, Etti offers snapshots into the daily lives of women from Lagos to London. Aligning herself with the Afro-futurism movement, vibrant, saturated colours are offset by exaggerated bold outlines to create an enticing and approachable aesthetic, making these vitally important themes accessible to all.
