Cast: Chizi (Agbogho Chizitalu) x AFROPUNK


By Aliyah Blackmore*, AFROPUNK Contributor

Chiizii is a visual artist and textile designer born and currently based in London, raised in New York with an eastern Nigerian Igbo background; her work is a reflection of her varied surroundings and experiences, a powerful relationship with color and pattern, traditional and modern technique, with a special emphasis on culture –her own culture as well as the many that she has a connection with.
Art is a means through which she expresses social commentary, thoughts, and creates a space to learn about herself and others, as explored in her graduate collection “Agbogho Chizitalu;” the vibrant and layered collection is an ode to heritage, particularly masquerades of Igbo culture, unraveled through a series of textile garments, artwork, jewelry and a soundtrack.
Get in to her work and hear more about her graduate collection, “Agbogho Chizitalu” in our interview below!
