Chinwe Uwatse

Chinwe Uwatse is a painter. She studied Fine Arts at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, where she was greatly influenced by such masters as Obiora Udechukwu, Chike Aniakor, the late Chike Amaefuna and El Anatsui. She works mainly in oil on canvas, acrylic on board and watercolour and is also an avid writer of poetry.

A collection of Uwatse’s watercolours was displayed at ART X which have been described as “demonstrating a lyrical and exquisitely ephemeral quality that hints at unseen energy fields and forces that influence the everyday realities of the material world, and are themselves modified by the thoughts and actions of this realm.” (Maurice Bryant, Earthy Treasures Gallery, Ottawa, 1992)
