About Dennis Osadebe

Dennis Osadebe is a Nigerian mixed-media artist best known for his vibrant post-pop style. Osadebe’s style is a unique blend of digital processes which he uses to create canvases that are subsequently layered with acrylic paint. With his characteristic use of flattened planes and bold colours, the artist creates what he refers to as a “NEO” visual style, one that is “modern, bright, expressive and provocative”.
