Footnotes

  • "Bruce Onobrakpeya's artistic influences are as varied as his knowledge and appreciation of Nigeria's many physical environments and the cultures of the people who live there... Onobrakpeya is an artistic inventor and experimenter, constantly on the lookout for new technologies and techniques. He is also a passionate defender of the natural environment, which sets up a dynamic tension in his work."
