Nigerian born painter Njideka Akunyili Crosby uses a variety of techniques to create her multi layered artworks. Her paintings depict collaged still life scenes and situations based on memories from her adopted home in the US and her birth home in Nigeria. Patternbank are loving her mix of collage and African print. Her use of layers with painted details, create flat plains with a three dimensional depth.
