Favour Jonathan is a multi-disciplinary artist born in Benin kingdom Edo state, Nigeria. She was raised up traditionally, learning about the history of the kingdom, craft, beliefs and values. Her work explores where traditional art and cultural beliefs sit in the contemporary world and how her cultural beliefs influence the growth in our everyday.
She uses her work as a second voice in motivating and educating the younger generation and to celebrate the strength in the female existence through art.
Favour has a long line of outreach work with primary, secondary schools and youth centres. She uses the research in her practice to inform and teach through creativity.
