“Ideas were his only sustained passion.” - Richard Wright 

Nnanna is of Igbo, African-American, Hausa and French lineage. He holds dual American - Nigeria nationality.

His Directing/Producing work is predominately non-fiction inspired and explores ways of seeing social-political experiences. Connecting crossing paths between art & science, nature + tech, past ∞ future, remains his preoccupation. Experimentation, research, and play are central to his practice.

In addition to his art training, his research-based approach has developed over the last 12 years traveling through six continents as a qualitative researcher studying the social-economic effects of geographies and racial capitalism.
