Kelechi Charles Nwaneri: Figures: Solo Exhibition

1 September - 30 October 2023 Venezia

AKKA Project proudly presents a new solo exhibition by the talented artist, Kelechi Charles Nwaneri.

Returning to the enchanting city of Venice, Nwaneri brings forth his captivating creations, marking a triumphant homecoming following his participation in AKKA's esteemed residency program in 2020.


This exhibition stands as a dynamic amalgamation of two distinct yet interconnected series: "Postcards" and the eponymous "Figures." With an artistic finesse that is uniquely his own, Nwaneri skillfully weaves text and sketches into his iconic motif of bodies, evoking the essence of postcards that hold veiled narratives within. Amidst his hallmark "black figures with white marks and symbols," a symphony of new elements takes the stage. Nwaneri seamlessly integrates designs inspired by the tapestry of everyday life, employing image transfer techniques to breathe fresh life into his canvas.


Kelechi Nwaneri: Figures invites you to immerse yourself in this captivating artistic odyssey, a spectacle that unfurls from September 1st to October 30th, 2023, within the embrace of AKKA Project Venice.
