Kosi Nnebe’s Art:

A four-pane painting on transparent plexi glass by Nigerian-born, Canadian artist, Kosisochukwu Nnebe, has literally lit up the Montreal art scene. The painting  entitled “M(other)nity” seeks to re-define the complexity of the modern black woman as opposed to the prevalent simplistic portrayal of black women in the mainstream media.

Kosi’s exhibition, which ran at the famous Montreal Museum of Fine Arts till the end of March, was her second major art exhibition in Montreal in two years. In February, 2013, as part of the annual Black History Month, she held a solo art exhibition, ‘Kosi’s Vernisage’ to the acclaim of the art-loving Montreal society. Her current and previous works have been broadcast on local television channels and re-blogged across various Internet portals, reigniting the discussion of the deprecating portrayal of the black female body in mainstream media.
