Abstract:
Thematic linkage in Bruce Onobrakpeya's artworks has been a significant subject, which attracted the consideration of this research work. The choice of system of links in Onobrakpeya's artworks observed by these researchers informed the main reason why three different thematic approaches: visual adaptation, parody and the intertextuality links have been positioned as the main discursive elements within the context of communicating his artistic thoughts. Onobrakpeya is a Nigerian art empiricist who defines his artistic boundary based on his African cultural heritage. He is a prolific artist who mostly leans backward to fathom great ideas from the past dictum to address the dictate of the present. His artworks describe the different arena of African pristine primordial cultural values, which have motivated these researchers into appreciable determinism in the context of their belief that all events are caused by things that happened before them. His artistic ingenuity is the root cause of significant reason for taking a decision to look at different thematic approaches in his artistic genre. It is observed in the study that Onobrakpeya has proactively sharpened his artistic skills towards a distinctive art locomotion that points to relations between various textual and visual approaches. The study of these approaches has, however, revealed the fact that his artistic creations have literary trope of emblem, symbol and metaphor in them.
