Odili Donald Odita (born on 18 February 1966) is an African American abstract painter who lives and works in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Odita's work explores color both in the figurative historical context and in the sociopolitical sense. His vibrant large-scale abstractions have been described as "showstoppers" and are considered to raise questions about race and society. Most of Odita's work is inspired by the vibrant textiles of his home country, Nigeria mixed with patterns from Western modernity.
