About the Artist
Urunwa Ikegwuonu Chidinma started her journey in the arts as a child and was led to it by her imaginations, teenage inquisitiveness, creative environment, travel and academic attainment. Art has always been a medium for her to express her ideas about the social, political, cultural and gender issue in her country.
Urunwa gained her art degree at the University of Benin. She works with oil colour/acrylic on canvas and non-biodegradable plastic straws onboard. She makes use of the style of expressionism in her works. Her paintings have a strong physical presence which is enhanced through her skill in playing with figures and use of colours.
