Daniel Obasi is a multifaceted artist. Attracted to old cinema and Afro-Futurism, this Nigerian born Artist is deeply concerned with advancing the scope of African narratives. Consistently working and drawing inspiration from his city Lagos, Nigeria, Daniel is famous for exploring subject matters like sexuality, masculinity, beauty, cultural symbolism, Afrocentric fantasy and human relations. Daniel Obasi’s works birth a certain idealism to Afrocentric concepts; whimsical, soft yet powerfully contrasting with sharp silhouettes, colors and stories. Today, Daniel Obasi is based between Lagos and Paris working internationally as a photographer and director.
