BIOGRAPHY
A true millennial born in Nigeria in the year 2000, Chiderah Bosah’s art investigates internal dialogues with the inner self through contemporary portraits that examine the human spirit. His art takes a deep dive into how humanity is revealed externally through powerful and captivating expressions. With a sophisticated palette that shines through all his exhibitions, from The Arthouse Contemporary (2020) in Nigeria to Collective Reflections (2020) in Ghana, Bosah has created quotidian images of people he sees daily in colourful, void-like backgrounds.

There is a palpable softness and nuance that appears in every portrait. With every piece, Bosah highlights key elements of composition in rich colour while maintaining his unique brush stroke that promotes a sumptuous softness. He also continues the repeated motif of broad lines that accentuate the body and frames the vulnerable and transparent nature of his visual language that appears strongly in the subject’s face.
