5.0 out of 5 stars African Surrealism, 4 Mar 2012
This review is from: Monomono-Banza Diaries: Volume 1 (Paperback)
Eze Chimalio is a Nigerian writer, artist and filmmaker based in London, England and Enugu, Nigeria. His previous work includes the surreal comic book series PARAFFIN (1989 - 1991) and ALIEN BLUES (2003), a collection of illustrated stories from the lives of Africa's forgotten people.

MONOMONO - BANZA DIARIES VOL.1 deals with sex, death and politics in a disturbing and restless world. The past and the future, the developed and developing worlds coalesce in vignettes played out through a filter of love, relationships and human evolution. On one level it is a heartfelt love story and on another, a gradual descent into madness.

"You cannot draw anything serious or meaningful until you have shed the suffocating blanket of formal instruction. You need it but you must also lose it. It is only after 20 years in the pursuit of line, form and rhythm that you begin to see properly with your fingers." Eze Chimalio
