Osinachi is Africa's foremost crypto artist. Born in Aba, Nigeria, he is a self-taught digital artist whose work explores visible existence as protest and personal experiences within a technological environment.

Osinachi has developed a very personal, visual language. His use of Microsoft Word, arguably not the most professional medium for fine art, plays with the language of computers and their limited aesthetic parameters. Concurrently he informs us of the themes of deviation and identity ownership, which occur throughout his work.

Interested in reimagining how individuals and collectives engage in advocacy for freedom of identity by thwarting societal expectations, he draws from his experiences as an Igbo person. He creates figurative portraits that feature subjects often posing in bold and assertive positions and, whether they are nude or dressed in African textile prints, they initiate conversations around identity, sexuality, gender and culture, topics that most people are often hesitant to engage with.

In Touch is a tribute to the artist's Igbo heritage where the leopard is a symbol of strength and masquerades as a bridge between ancestors and the living. IT is a work that clearly represents the artist's work ethos of documenting the collective and individual history of the African people and their descendants, particularly through its relation identity, individuality and the collective.
