This pioneer book focuses on the work of Dele Jegede, one of the leading Nigerian artists in the last three decades, to reflect on the connections between images and the nation state, the linkages between art and humanity and the understanding of society through means different from oral and written texts. The book draws on the individual experiences of scholars and professional artists in Nigeria and the Diaspora to paint a complex, multi-dimensional portrait of Jegede, one that puts in context his work as a scholar, painter, curator, critic, cartoonist and administrator.
