Stephen Aifegha is an award-winning African artist based in the United States whose paintings have been exhibited nationally. His subject matter and narrative of his works as a mixed media artist center on historical, social, and cultural issues that concern Africa regarding Postcolonialism, cultural syncretism, culture clash, and pride. My art is activism regarding these problems and issues faced by the continent of Africa. It draws back to pre-colonial and post-colonial setbacks that have caused tremendous distress for Africa today.
