Kenny Adewuyi


Kenny Adewuyi (born 1959) studied art at Ahmadu Bello University, Nigeria. He maintains a studio in the Vosges, France and in Ota Nigeria and was mentored by late Gani Odutokun.

Adewuiyi’s works display a deep commitment to Igbo traditional art forms; his techniques involve using ancient art forms, such as the lost wax technique, which was used in Igbo Land as far back as the 9th century. He creates bronze sculptures that portray themes such as struggle, affection and poverty through the exaggeration and elongation of the human figure
