Ebong Ekwere was born in 1961 and attended Yaba College of Technology, Lagos,
where he graduated in 1985 with a Higher National Diploma in fine arts, majoring in
sculpture. Ekwere works with wood and metal in two broad representational styles; an
academic mode through which he produces striking portraits of Nigerian personages,
and a more stylized expression, in which he exaggerates several facets of his figures to
achieve rhythm and movement. Ekwere is also a gifted craftsman, and his work has
been exhibited extensively in Nigeria and abroad.
