Ene Yakno-Abasi Jessicah

Nigerian 1995- 

Ene Yakno-Abasi Jessicah was born in 1998. She is a surrealist painter born and based in vibrant Lagos, Nigeria. Yakno's artistic exploration is driven by a profound appreciation for the expressive qualities of the medium. Raised in a close-knit family primarily composed of women, her art is a reflection of the depth of sororal bonds and how they manifest from shared memories and experiences.

Yakno takes advantage of the expressive nature of her artistic practice to create work that advances intersectional feminism, with a particular emphasis on the empowerment and representation of women in third-world countries. Utilising mixed media and a vibrant colour palette, she skillfully crafts stylized characters, seamlessly blending two-dimensional elements with the richness, proximity, gestures, and values of three-dimensional imagery. This approach adds layers of texture and depth, enhancing the expressiveness and perceptual experience of her paintings for all viewers. Yakno has taken part in several group shows in Nigeria and has also found her place in private and corporate collections, both in her home country and abroad.
