Eto Otitigbe

Eto Otitigbe is polymedia artist whose practice includes sculpture, performance, and installation.  Otitigbe seeks to investigate issues of race, technology, politics, and human interaction.  His art can be experienced as type of a creative protest, a cultural artifact, or a radical sculptural environment. Otitigbe has lived across the United States, Nigeria, Puerto Rico, and the United Kingdom. He operates like an open system in constant flux negotiating between the various polar regions of his identity: Nigerian-Artist-American-Engineer-DJ-Designer, to name a few. 

Otitigbe studied Mechanical Engineering at MIT (BS, 1999); and Product Design at Stanford University (MS, 2003); He earned an MFA in Creative Practice from the Transart Institute (2012). In 2013 he participated in the Bronx Museum’s AIM Residency program and biennial, Bronx Calling; in the same year he received a public art commission as part of FLOW 13.  Otitigbe lives and works between Brooklyn, New York and Austin, Texas.
