Osinachi (born Prince Jacon Osinachi Igwe) is a digital artist from Aba, Nigeria, whose work explores personal experiences within a technological environment.

As Africa’s foremost CryptoArtist, his digital artworks have been one of the most sought after on online rare digital art galleries.

Tennis Player

Tennis Player boldly challenges the preconception of gender and clothing, seemingly juxtaposing a male tennis player and his outfit.

Gender transcends clothes and clothing. For years, most Africans and indeed most people across the world have wrongly attached a particular mode or style of dressing to a particular gender. For example, a woman is expected to be in skirts while a man is expected to be in trousers. This artwork turns that narrative on its head by imagining a male tennis player in skirts. Basically, the piece asks what is wrong in a man wearing a skirt if that’s really what he wants?

Lazy Nigerian Youth

Lazy Nigerian Youth captures the #LazyNigerianYouths movement paying tribute to the many hard-working young Nigerians doing legitimate work to survive.

Two years ago, Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari while speaking at the Commonwealth Business Forum commented that a lot of Nigerian youth have not been to school and want everything free. This drew backlash from young people in the country, leading to the #LazyNigerianYouths movement on social media. This piece references that event and serves to pay tribute to the Nigerian youth who are out there, day and night, doing legit work and trying to make money to survive.

The subject in the piece is one of a number of mobile tailors who move around cities with a sewing machine, mending people’s clothes for pay.
