We talk so you may listen – In this episode, Jay interviews Osinachi (born Prince Jacon Osinachi Igwe) a self-taught digital artist whose work explores personal experiences within a technological environment. Osinachi, who grew up in Aba, Nigeria, produces drawings using Microsoft Word, where he utilizes the basic limited design palette of the word processing software to create narrative illustrations. He is Africa’s foremost cryptoartist.
In 2018, he became the first-ever Nigerian artist to showcase artworks at the Ethereal Summit, a conference in New York that seeks to bridge the gap between technology and art through blockchain. He was a finalist for the Bridgeman Studio Award 2019.
This week’s playlist features Naya Akanji, Nonso Amadi, Oxlade, Eri Ife, and Remy Baggins, in that order. Enjoy!
