We are the North is a series of contemporary art pieces inspired by Northern Nigeria where Williams was raised, and pop art - an art movement that challenges traditional fine art by including imagery from popular culture and cultural objects.  The juxtaposition of the imagery and vibrant pop art is visually appealing.

The We are the North exhibition will be happening at The Moorhouse Hotel in Ikoyi, Lagos in conjunction with Alliance Français de Lagos. The exhibition runs from June 3 to June 16.
