Ngozi Rosemary Akande is a prolific Nigerian artist who uses her art as an advocacy for women rights and empowerment. She is a mentor to younger artists, women and children.

“I paint with acrylic, oil and use discarded textile, jute and other found objects to create impasto in my painting. I do not limit myself to any particular style because art is versatile, giving one opportunity to explore. My theme arises from the situation I find myself at any particular period.”
