This article appraises Nigerian artist Ben Enwonwu’s contribution to postcolonial modernism in Nigeria through an analysis of his artistic responses to the Nigeria-Biafra war (1967–70). It argues that Enwonwu’s varied ‘Biafrascapes’, which include portraits, landscapes and paintings featuring mythopoetic imagery, reflect his struggle to ethically convey the conflict’s complex realities and legacies.
