In Reconceived, painter/illustrator Aniekan Udofia presents a collection of personal work created in between restrictive commercial projects to maintain inspiration. His passion for blending conceptual ideas with storyline narratives comes alive in series like ‘Reloaded’ and ‘Return Of The Shaolin Pencil’. With influence from comics and fantasy art, Udofia’s works have an afro-futurism spirit exploring ideas of self-discovery, the balance of ying and yang and the benefits of positive and negative energies.
Aniekan Udofia is a portrait artist known for his large-scale paintings and murals in the Washington, D.C. area. Aniekan Udofia has achieved local notoriety for his towering murals of Duke Ellington, Fredrick Douglas and George Washington as well as live paintings at events hosted by Red Bull, Heineken, Honda, Timberland and Adidas. Udofia has garnered national attention with his caricatures and photorealistic illustrations for urban publications XXL, Vibe, Rime, Elemental, DC Pulse, Frank 151 and The Source.
