Victor Ehikhamenor is an artist, photographer, and writer born in the village of Udomi- Uwessan, Nigeria. Ehikhamenor has been prolific in producing abstract, symbolic and politically motivated works.
His works are influenced by the duality of African traditional religion and the interception of Western beliefs, memories and nostalgia. His symbols and motifs are reminiscent of his childhood village shrines art as well as the Catholicism that was inherent in his village.
