The future is digital.. the Nwanyi Oma collection by presents a story of the future and the past; my future and my past. I express the desire to hide and be seen, simultaneously, and the hesitations to treasure true beauty and strength while exploring the sui generis nature of individuality. I am my own muse. My thoughts and truths inspire me and express the universal struggle for identity – a merging of inner worlds with the textures of reality. My works show my facial features interwoven with patterns that reflect my powerful heritage and African culture.

Self unseen

Digital print on canvas So many, I have been, but here lies the scariest of them all- sketched with soul, Strokes of limitless, And fearlessly carved- A portrait with my true colours. - Somi N.

Self in Side-Eye

When you've learned to both see and not see the resemblance...then you see the uniqueness.
