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.

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."
