Ghariokwu Lemi


Ghariokwu Lemi is a Nigerian artist and designer who is most renowned for providing many of the original cover images for the recordings of Nigerian musician Fela Kuti. His work involves a variety of styles, often using vibrant colours and individuated typefaces of his own design. More than 2,000 album covers have been designed by Lemi, including covers for Bob Marley, E. T. Mensah, Osita Osadebe, Gilles Peterson and Antibalas (WKPD).

Ghariokwu's art oozes soul-drenched rawness with every stroke of the pen, creating a whole new language of album cover art that bristles with social and political criticism.
