Inua Ellams is a poet.
On his site is says ‘I’m a word & graphic artist. Yep, sounds a tad pretentious I know, but it covers everything’
Born in Jos, Plateau State, Nigeria ‘1984, Inua Ellams is a Word and Graphic Artist, a writer with a style as influenced by classic literature as it is by hip hop, by Keats as it is by MosDef. Rooted in a love for rhythm and language, he crosses 18th century romanticism & traditional story telling with contemporary diction and musicality. However, his first love was visual art; the first time he toyed with a pencil, he fell for the magic of line and form. He works extensively as a graphic designer / visual artist where also tries to mix the old with the new juxtaposing texture and pigment with flat shades of color and digitally created images.
