ABOUT NNEKA

I am figurative artist based in London. I trained in the classic atelier method at London Fine
Art Studios, where I now teach part-time. During my time studying I also received the De
Laszlo Foundation Scholarship consecutively 2016-2017 to continue my studies.

In 2019 I was selected as a finalist for the Royal British Artists Rome Scholarship and took
part in their Rising Stars Exhibition.

My current direction of work fuses my imagination with the skills I have developed from a
traditional training of painting from life. This focuses on a more playful story telling of
human nature with whimsical dreams and the surreal, to create interesting personal spaces.
