Ejiwa ‘Edge’ Ebenebe is a Nigerian-Canadian artist based in BC, Canada. Born outside of their parent’s homeland, they went on to experience multiple cultures throughout their childhood and early adulthood. As an immigrant, they wrestle with concepts of community and identity, both within themself and their work, and strive to create representation for voices (particularly Black and/or LGBTQ+ folks) who are often pushed out of positive, empowering narratives.
But also echoing in their work is a love for the ethereal, fantasy stories they grew up with. From a passion for vibrant colours, to a love of ornamentation, their varying homes have strongly moulded their creative perspective, weaving themselves throughout each piece they create.
In combining all these influences they hope to create work that is uplifting and whimsical, a respite from life’s rigors.
They have worked with clients including Scholastic, Wizards of the Coast and Marvel. Their work has also featured in publications such as ImagineFX Magazine, Infected By Art, and Brink’s very own F(r)iction.
