Ngadi is a visual artist from Sierra Leone and divides her work mainly between the UK and Côte d’Ivoire.
She has studied art and design in the UK and at OCAD University in Canada, and lived in Côte d’Ivoire and Tunisia. Her illustration and collage creations explore identity, culture and sexuality from an African perspective.
Her work plays with texture and is colourful and unapologetic. She likes to deconstruct mainstream society's preconceived views of what the definitions of “normal”, “beautiful” and “right” are.
Ngadi's illustrations have appeared in The Atlantic, OneWorld magazine and Reportagen Magazine. She has also created work for publishing houses such as Riverhead Books in New York.
