Paintings by Monica Ikegwu

Published Sep 30, 2019

Monica Ikegwu is a 20 year old American artist based in Baltimore and represented by Band of Vices Art Gallery. She uses her work as a platform to feature the occurrences that go unnoticed to the public as well as a means of sharing her thoughts and opinions on certain topics.

“Monica Ikegwu’s work is structured upon the portraiture and depiction of African Americans. She displays figures rendered in the three dimension while accompanied with two dimensional design elements. Her work brings to focus issues and subtleties that she notices in the black community as well as her personal life.

Living in Baltimore and the way that she experiences it plays a big role in the ideas that she develops for the work. Taking feelings and aspects from her surroundings, she presents them in a way that is not only captivating but also unconventional. The figures presented in her work are often times her siblings and family from whom she draws most of her inspiration from as she watches them progress through life.”
