Angela Amami Isiuwe is a minimalist painter who works mostly in watercolour, oil and acrylic paints and interprets her subjects in swift, essential, concise lines and forms that create three-dimensionality with balance and depth. The works to be presented by Bloom Art at ART X are a selection from Isiuwe’s ongoing homage to the female essence and form.
Isiuwe developed an interest in art at an early age and pursued this interest under formal guidance despite intense pressure from her parents to become a lawyer. She studied art and design at the Federal Polytechnic in Auchi, majoring in painting and graduating in 1992. She interned with the renowned artist Sam Ovraiti in Lagos in 1994 and has practiced as a full-time studio artist ever since.
