VISUAL ARTIST /ART CONSULTANT

  • " The great divide" -

    This work represents the deprived and impoverished Niger Delta people of Nigeria west Africa whose rich oil deposits are siphoned to develop other regions and left to rot in abject poverty thereby creating a great divide between the squalor they call home and the skyscrappers in faraway places in same Nigeria.

  • ARTMONACO 2013 -

    An exhibition in MONACO, FRANCE., with the body of work titled: MY NIGER DELTA:THE STRUGGLE, SACRIFICES & PEACE TODAY.

Born, raised and educated in the oil rich Niger-Delta region of Nigeria, I grew up to find myself in a creative oriented household. My direct encounter with clay through my maternal aunt (a traditional potter) at age seven resulted in the early discovery of the exciting world of art.
Had my early education at Ughelli my native town in Delta State. I gained admission into the famous University of Port-Harcourt creative art school in the early 90’s, where I graduated with an upper honours degree in Visual Arts.

The indebt enthusiasm I have for what I studied earned me the Deans subject prize award for “Best graduating student” in creative art class of 1993-97 amongst other awards. As a young creative artist, I has other renowned artists like Dr. Bruce Onobrakpeye, Prof. J.T Agberia, Dr. Frank Ugiomoh and ofcourse my senior course mate and friend James Uche Iroha as role models. I am a full time practicing studio artist with Studio/Galleries in Port-Harcourt, River State and Warri, Delta State both in Nigeria.

Have held exhibitions both within and outside, and a member of Society of Nigerian Artists (SNA). Was at ARTMONACO 2013, where I exhibited a body of work Titled: MY NIGER DELTA: THE STRUGGLE, SACRIFICES & PEACE TODAY.
My interests include Children's rights, Culture & Identity, Human rights and equity, Religion & Spirituality.
...above all is taking GLOBAL the pains and degredation my people of the Niger - Delta suffer every day in silence, this I do through my brush strokes and spatula., but I am by no means restricted to this traditionalism.
