Chinaza Agbor was born in Dallas, Texas. She is currently attending the Royal College of Art where she is pursuing her Masters degree in Painting.
Chinaza’s current pieces focus on the conflicted reality of being a consumer whilst navigating a capitalistic society as a black woman. She not only studies her own participation in consumer culture but the negative effects it has had on her psyche. Her work continuously dissects how economic mobility and class shape the black experience. She challenges the narrative of what is expected from a black artist by referencing and juxtaposing past and present creative works.
