Tanya Tillett

Born in Nigeria, Inua Ellams is a cross art form practitioner, a poet, playwright & performer, a graphic artist & designer. He is a Complete Works poet alumni, a playwright-in-resident at Soho Theatre, resident at the Southbank Centre’s Poetry Library, and a graphic designer at White Space Creative Agency. Across his work, Identity, Displacement & Destiny are reoccurring themes in which he also tries to mix the old with the new: traditional african storytelling with contemporary poetry / pencil with pixel / texture with vector images. His first two books of poetry are published by Flipped Eye, and several plays by Oberon.
