Everlyn Nicodemus

Visual artist /writer /independent scholar (PhD) currently based in Edinburgh, UK

As a black African born artist in the European Diaspora, I have had to negotiate ingrained prejudices against black artists. As an internationally published writer I have tried critically to analyse and fight those prejudices. Researching on the subject of modern art in sub-Saharan Africa, its genesis and initial stages during colonial rule and the early phase of independence, I have examined how a black cultural trauma mainly caused by colonial oppression represented a psychological obstacle to surpass, which in many cases induced a specific pioneering spirit to African modernism.
