Collection: Christie 'Jibs' Akinsanya

Christie Akinsanya (nee Adekoya) also known as Jibs, is an experienced artist born in Kaduna, Nigeria and grew up in Isale-eko and Surulere, Lagos. She earned a BA degree in Fine Art from Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, taught fine art at King’s College Lagos and eventually became an officer at the Federal Scholarship Board, Ministry of Education, retiring in 2008. She’s also a Yoruba titled leader, the Yeye Otunba Olumodan of Ijebu-Land.

Christie traveled the world with her husband, Ambassador Otunba Olusegun Akinsanya, exposing her to different cultures and way of life, all of which contributed to her knowledge as an artist. She has exhibited her work in different cities including Moscow, London, Dakar and Addis Ababa. 

Her latest exhibition is the “I am Alive” collection, which was organized to celebrate, and honour a life well spent. The collection is rich and vast, showing works that cut across various channels of life; culture, nature etc. 

Christie’s works also celebrates Nigeria, its women, culture – particularly the Yoruba traditions -, her faith and fashion. Her keen interest in children is also reflected in her work, where she tries to capture their innocent and genuine expression.

Christie’s work is eclectic, and we cannot wait for what she will do next.

Limited prints are available for this collection.
