Foundation for the Arts, Lagos, and taught Art at The Whitesands School,

Anthony's works ask questions of nationality, migration, and black identity.

With a focus on the Black experience, his works delve into childhood

memories of community, festivals, and rituals, celebrating shared spaces in

Africa. The works become witness to a conscious inclusion in the

performative arts. An avid traveler, he is fascinated by all the international

cultural conversations.

appearing in art fairs ArtX Lagos, the New York Art Fair, the Dak’ Art

Biennale, Senegal, etc. Anthony has frequently participated in the last two

decades of exhibitions of the works of artists from the new Uli School, the
