Akachukwu Chukwuemeka

Akachukwu Benjamin Chukwuemeka is a graduate of the Fine and Applied Art programme of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, and has a postgraduate diploma in gender studies from the University of Abuja.

A painter as well as a poet, Chukwuemeka sees his work in both mediums — which often share common themes — as both a window into the endless world of the imagination and a frame to be contemplated in its own right. Chukwuemeka draws inspiration for his work from the deep beauty of the particulars of his immediate surroundings, including cloud formations, people rushing home from work, animals and birds of all kinds, and the spirits that monitor all activity, all of which he represents in his current project, entitled Forms from My Sky, for which he employs vat dye and acrylic on canvas.

Previous exhibitions include The Provenance, Lagos (2017) and Colori il vesuvio, Napoli (2016).
