Chioma Ebinama was born to first generation Nigerian parents and grew up in the dense Nigerian community of Maryland. Her multidisciplinary studio practice ranges from works on paper to soft sculpture. She is interested in understanding the role of the African artist in negotiating the representations of the black female body in Western culture. Moreover, her work explores how visual narrative and crafts create space for the fractured sense of identity inherent to those whose histories have been obscured by American and European hegemony over African history. In 2016 she received her MFA from the School of Visual Arts. She recently exhibited at the 2018 Spring/Break Art Fair, and was featured in an offsite exhibition in the 2018 Dakar Biennale.
