Phillips Nzekwe is both an excentric and inspiring personality.From the way he works, one can quickly gather that he is hard working and passionate about his work. While most sculptors have chosen to work in the primary sculpting media of wood, stone and metal, Phillips has come up with an extraordinary way of developing these life size sculptures form metal, fibre mat,saw dust and gravel among other materials.
Phillips holds a degree in Fine & Applied Arts and a masters in Sculpture from Delta State University.He has been on a two month residency programme at Kuona trust during which he has taught a sculpting workshop and passed on a wealth of skills and knowledge to our artists.
