VS50 – Nnamdi Nwoha

Nnamdi Nwoha (a.k.a. Drofu), is a Nigerian artist, painter and designer who focuses on urban culture and lifestyle Lagos. His style of art can best be described as urban surrealism and is crafted with a mission to remain relevant and relatable to urban Nigerians.

His Dressed to Kill series is an example of work from Nnamdi that remains grounded in the everyday realities of Nigeria with an abstract twist. The series showcases the love of fashion in Nigeria, particularly Lagos, with images of well dressed Nigerians wielding weapons to literally illustrate the idea of being ‘dressed to kill’.

Nnamdi personally describes his art style as “Lush”. Some of his work can be found on his website Drofu.com, and are also featured on many platforms across the country.
