Affen Segun

Affen Segun (b.1993 Lagos, Nigeria) is a self-taught artist who began drawing at the age of 10 after being inspired by the popular Nigerian comic “Super Strikers”. Since 2018, Segun has developed a distinctive style, inspired by the colourful ankara fabric worn by his Yoruba mother for occasions and celebrations. Segun attributes his creativity to his mother and paid homage to her with his first solo exhibition in Lagos titled, Omo Adérónké, (son of Adérónké).

Segun lives and works in Lagos, Nigeria.
