 Barthosa Nkurumeh
Barthosa Nkurumeh is an artist and art educator. Originally from Nigeria, he now works in the United States.

 Victor Ekpuk
Nigerian artist Victor Ekpuk. "My interest and challenge in creating art has been to use elements of ancient African art, especially the writing systems, to express contemporary experiences. Writing and graphic symbols are the main inspiration for my style. They greatly feed the love for expressing myself with these ancient forms, particularly those of Nsibidi, an indigenous African system of communication that employs graphic signs, as well as pantomime and the placement of objects to convey concepts."
