Bruce Obomeyoma Onobrakpeya (b. 1932) is widely acknowledged as Africa's master printmaker. This Nigerian artist is also a painter and sculptor who has exhibited at Tate Modern, London and the Malmo Konsthall in Malmo, Sweden, among many other major international institutions. Onobrakpeya stands in the vanguard of the first generation of contemporary artists who were educated in colonial Nigeria, but who set standards for innovation and professionalism in a new, post-colonial nation after 1960. Onobrakpeya: Masks of the Flaming Arrows presents an astonishing array of sumptuous colour reproductions of drawings, paintings, prints and installations by the artist. Edited by Dele Jegede, the book also features insightful and critical contributions from a team of scholars. This book features a wide range of works by the artist in a variety of media, including pen and ink, etching, serigraphy, plastocast, additive plastograph and oil or acrylic on dipti- or tripti-linen. Included as well are notes by the artist on his work, as well as selections of the poetry he has written on a range of topics.

A comprehensive timeline on the creative and professional activities of Onobrakpeya since his first solo exhibition in 1959 to his current annual.
