Collection: Ugonna Ibekwe

Ugonna is an aspiring art historian, performance artist and painter. He is currently the president of the 10-for-10 Art Society, a group founded in 2020 made up of young visual artist exploring different forms and media of art.

Distinguished by his creative approach to visualizing forms, his paintings are often rendered in circular faces and eyes with the female figures having the stylistic hair style of the Igbo females of the 1960s and 70s. His art works also feature elements of traditional Uli art, an influence he acquired from the Nsukka art school where he is undergoing his formal education in fine art. 

He expresses emotions through the directions and vibrancy of his rich colour palette. His style has secured increasing recognition as he continues to call attention to relevant themes of discussion in the African contemporary society. His vivid paintings are laden with unresolved tensions that rise from the confusion of the mixture of cultural influence in the contemporary African society.
