About Me

Chike's PhotoEducation

I hold a BA (Hons) degree in Fine and Applied Arts from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (1987). I also hold a Certificate in Artists in Schools Training from the Institute of Education, University of London (1995), and a Diploma in Digital Origination from University of the Arts, London (2005).

Work

My paintings are colourful, vibrant and painted mainly in oils. I am both a figurative and abstract painter. Some of my figurative works are stylised and often done in impasto, using palette and painting knives. I am also a portrait painter with an impressive portfolio of commissioned work in oil, charcoal, acrylic, pencil and pastel.

For over two decades, I organised and led many art workshops in primary schools, secondary schools, and in community art centres around London.

Exhibitions & Collections

I have had several solo, joint and group exhibitions since 1984 in Nigeria, France and the UK; notably, ‘Offspring of the Mind’ at Enugu, Nigeria (1988); ‘Symbols and Cymbals’ in London (1994) and ‘Exhibition of Recent Paintings’ also in London (2004).

My paintings are in private and public collections in the United Kingdom, Finland, USA, Nigeria, Italy, Canada and France.

I live and work in South East London (UK).
