About The Artist

Stephanie Icon


Stephanie Unaeze is a self taught Nigerian female artist, illustrator and art director, based in Lagos Nigeria. Her work is a cross over between pop art and surrealist art, which allows her to create large scale illustrations on canvas. Her work is very self expressive and unique showcasing the diversity in Nigerian and African art.

She sees her art as an outward expression of her inner diversity, citing her inspirations from a multitude of sources including music, books, culture,  fashion and design. As an artist she cuts across a number of mediums including acrylic on canvas, watercolor, and photography. She is able to express herself and the different aspects of her creative vision with various textures, looks and moods.

Her pieces are vibrant, whimsical and quirky. With her stylized characters, illustrations and colorful canvas pieces that are somewhere between pop art, illustration and surrealism, she gives her work that unique visual aesthetic she has come to be known for.
