Who is Demas Nwoko? Artist, protean designer, architect and master builder. Demas Nwoko has remained relevant in Nigerian art and cultural space since the 60s having distinguished himself first as an artist who evinced a concern with expressing the language of modern architectural techniques in traditional African idioms.
