Born in 1970 in Agbor, Delta State, Odogwu is one of Nigeria’s most successful contemporary sculptors working exclusively in metal. His interest in sculpture dates back to his childhood when he repaired broken wooden handles of farm tools in Agbor, Delta State. Odogwu later studied sculpture at Auchi Polytechnic and graduated in 1991. Odogwu’s works are created with steel rods and sheets sourced at the Owode and Orile metal markets in Lagos. He employs shear cutters, to slice the metal sheets into segments. With an arc grinding machine, they are smoothened and welded together if required, after which the artist pounds them into desirable shapes with a hammer. Usually cellulose or lacquer is used as a finishing to obliterate traces of joining.
