Chibuike Uzoma ( 1992 - )


CHIBUIKE UZOMA (born 1992) is a multidisciplinary artist who works with painting, photography, drawing, and text. Uzoma references contemporary politics in Africa and the Diaspora and questions popular culture against the backdrop of religious and ethnic conflict, by asking “maybe we know nothing?” He is beginning his Master’s of Fine Arts degree at Yale University Fall of 2019, and graduated from the University of Benin in 2013 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in painting. He has taken part in projects, exhibitions, and artist residencies in Nigeria, South Africa, Vienna, France, India, and the United States. Chibuike creates visual poetry which reflects our universal struggle with identity in a fast changing universe. On closer scrutiny, his large canvases reveal layered conversations, arguments and self-portraits which he paints with colorful energetic abandonment. His bright bold abstract surfaces are punctuated by a critical analysis of the transience and complexity of relationships.
