Authentication Committee

To stem the recent tide of forgeries of old masters' works in Nigeria, a Committee has been set up for the authentication of works of art purportedly by Ben Enwonwu.

The Committee meets thrice a year. Members include:
Chairman: Mr Olasehinde Odimayo, member, Board of Directors, The Ben Enwonwu Foundation
Mr Oliver Enwonwu, member, Board of Directors and Executive Director, The Ben Enwonwu Foundation

If you wish a work to be considered for the process of authentication, please follow the steps below:
1. Complete the form on our enquiries page by following the link to the right of this page.
2. If your request is accepted, you will be notified of the next available meeting date and sent an Agreement Form.
3. In order to proceed, you will be asked to complete and return the Agreement Form (PDF) together with payment in full, at least 7 days prior to the advised meeting date.

Genuine works will be issued a certificate of authenticity.
