dc.description.abstract Anikpe‟s works do not only stand as sculpted testimonies, they also interrogate the new order which man has imposed on the environment. Interestingly, man has discovered that the environment is increasingly being threatened by his unchecked construction activities and waste mismanagement. As a result, he has been seeking for ways of dealing with the problem. Governments and individuals from all works of life try to proffer solutions in different capacities. Ekene Anikpe is a young artist who has been attempting to engage the problem with his studio explorations. He has created a body of work that makes direct reference to man and his environment. This paper, therefore, examines the artistic and ecological significance of his recent body of work. It specifically considers the materials, processes and techniques that were harmonized into a sculptural whole that is metaphorical in context. en_US
