Kelsen Onyedikachi Nnaji, is a hyper-realistic muralist from Nigeria. He mainly works in graphite, charcoal and acrylic. He is also a student of Radiography at the University of Lagos, Nigeria, where he produces digital art. Adept in portraiture, he captures the essence and emotion of his subjects through his rendering of sweat, water droplets, skin pores, acne, moles, hair strands, wrinkles and fabric texture. Recently he has delved into the NFT(Non-Fungible Token) space as he believes they will play an important role in the future creative industry.
During his residency at Bunnell, Kelsen will be creating a mural at Grace Ridge Brewery.
Specific support for this residency is provided by the Alaska Community Foundation Irma Scavenius Fund for International Understanding, long-time Bunnell supporters, Kathy and Maynard Smith, and Grace Ridge Brewery.
