Jovita Odegua Akahome is a Canada-based visual artist whose work is influenced by geometric abstraction and an ancient African practice of body markings. Her work focuses on exploring the relationship between culture and identity. She has practiced professionally since 2013. She has a Bachelor of Arts, with a major in Visual arts and minor in history, from the University of Ottawa.

Jovita’s Nigerian background is an important inspiration for the recurring theme of identity marks in most of her work. While her preferred media are drawing and painting, she also excels in sculpture.
