Habeeb ANDU


Born in Lagos Nigeria, Habeeb Andu graduated with a degree in painting from Auchi Polytechnic, Edo State, Nigeria. He is greatly influenced by the late Nigerian Artist Ben Osaghae, and gained a lot of experience under his tutelage.

Inspired by the abstract expressionist, he infuses vibrant colours, large brush strokes and intricate discarded materials to produce mid to large size textured pieces that explore socio-political themes. In October 2017, Habeeb was selected as one of the Rele Art Foundation Young Contemporaries and in November 2017, won the ArtX prize for his work “Blacklist”.
