Gerald Chukwuma is a celebrated visual artist and furniture designer with an enthusiastic local and international following. He graduated from the prestigious Nsukka Art School at the University of Nigeria with a first-class degree in painting. Chukwuma’s bold works using a multitude of found objects have an unforgettable visual language, in which he uses African symbols and patterns in refreshing new ways. He explores the concept of migration with a desire to examine the mutations of human life, triggered by the digital collapse of the geographical lines separating us. The reconfiguration and integration of his medium reflect the reprocessing man undergoes during migration, and the adorned motifs and symbols reflect how experience and social knowledge impress our development.
