Paul Ayihawu is a Nigerian-based contemporary African artist Paul Ayihawu uses charcoal and Acrylic to tell the story of Africa in a new light. His work focuses more on the social-cultural issues and the impact of colonialism on African cultures and values. He expressed this often with flipped portraitures of black people dress in a hybrid of western and African dresses. He is fervent about telling the untold, unheard, and silent stories of the black community. His works are in private collections in the USA, South Africa, and Nigeria.
