Victor Ekpuk: Connecting Lines Across Space and Time
This book captures the full essence of Victor Ekpuk’s work as an artist of global reputation, a master of mysterious scripts, ancient signs and symbols. His messages, encrypted in nsibidi and other symbols and signs, find expressions in paintings, illustrations, cartoons and murals. His powerful messages are encrypted in those signs and symbols in ways that are sometimes obvious, often times complex, and subject to multiple ambiguous meanings, from the ritualized to the sacred, from the secularized to the mythical. In this book, twelve talented authors reflect on the artist, his background, the foundation of his creativity, and the interpretations of his symbolic messages.
