Born in Auchi, Nigeria, Adulphina Imuede locates her innermost voice through her art practice. Her
family relocated to Lagos during her early childhood due to her father’s service in the Nigerian Army.
Growing up within the discipline of a military family, she picked up an interest in drawing from an early
age as an outlet for unspoken emotions and desires. After completing her degree in painting at the
University of Lagos in 2016, she joined the 2018 cohort of For Creative Girls platform and worked under
the mentorship of Data Oruwari.
Her practice has since evolved into a celebration of self awareness, personal voice, and layers of identity.
A trained painter and self-professed drawing enthusiast, Imuede is a multi hyphenate playing with oils,
watercolors and acrylics with equal competence. She believes in the redeeming capacity of art and
describes her process as therapeutic. Adulphina’s work brings to light hidden elements of African history
and embraces a personal sense of purpose.
