Ndidi Dike is a major contemporary British Nigerian artist who works across a multiplicity of fields including mixed media, painting, sculpture, collage, lens-based media, video, and installation. Born in London, she returned to Nigeria to train as a painter and graduated from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, with a BA degree in Mixed Media Painting. Internationally, Ndidi is known as a sculptor having taught herself how to sculpt with decades of transgressive sculptural practice. Ndidi primarily works as a multimedia artist with a special interest in personal archives, long-term research-based projects, and engaging with global histories to address pre- and post-colonial historic and social economic legacy of the enslaved. She is also interested in forced migration, memory, and other issues related to Atlantic World Relations, which looks at the circulation of bodies, ideas, performances and cultures within the context of the Atlantic World. For years, her art has sought to address and refract the most pressing socio-political and economic concerns of our time through sophisticated and conceptually-driven artworks and projects that offer audiences fresh perspectives on the present. Ndidi resides in Lagos where she runs her own studio.
