Kanayo Ede


Artist Biography:

Growing up in southeastern Nigeria, Kanayo keenly observed the colours and designs on the Dutch-wax fabrics his father, a textile dealer, imported from Holland and this Kanayo says was his introduction to the magic of colours. After obtaining a BFA degree from the University Of Maiduguri in the former ancient Kanem Bornu Empire, he worked as an art instructor at a college of education where he taught human drawing and landscape painting. He left a year later after his national service for MC & A, a Saatchi and Saatchi Advertising agency where he was designer and a senior visualizer. Three years later Kanayo packed up and left the country for the United States to paint full time.
