ili , a visual expose of artistic expressions in Nigerian textiles is an augmented reality of the beauty in fabrics rich in cultural heritage. ili explores the many colors and artistic expressions in the daily and social endeavors of Nigerian ethnic groups with underlying connection deeply rooted in the various cultural, ceremonial, and even spiritual fabrics. 

 

ili, using the human form as a canvas,  presents the Nigerian story through distinct markings on the subject's body, creating a skin-deep illustration of the body and the fabric in unison.

 

Beyond the relationship that exists between the cultures and fabrics, ili showcases the beauty and intricacies of the fabrics as expressed by the cultures.
