Doofan Kwaghhool

Doofan Kwaghhool (Nigerian, b.1986) is an artist and art educator who creates socially-engaged artwork. Influenced by her experience growing up as a woman in Nigeria, the artist’s work often questions and challenges the male/female binary that she grew up with. In addition, Doofan Kwaghhool is greatly influenced by the music and Swange dance of the Tiv people from Benue State, as well as their Ange, or black and white garments. While painting, Doofan Kwaghhool will listen to music, using abstract imagery, vibrant colors, and a rhythmic brushstroke to express the sensation of listening to a particular song.

The artist writes, “being a black African woman, there is so much responsibility. Studio art practice is also a huge responsibility.” Doofan Kwaghhool's commitment to her viewer, as well as her own experience, is admirable. The artist states, “art is far more than aesthetics;” it is also “a guide to developing character, intelligence, reasoning, and spirituality that shapes society.” As an artist, Doofan Kwaghhool offers her own version of that guide and urges society toward a more equitable future.
