ARTIST INFO

 

About 

 

My name is Chike Azuonye, a Nigeria-born British artist living and working in London, and have been active in the London art scene since the late 1980s. I am a graduate of Fine and Applied Arts from the University of Nigeria. I have a diploma in digital origination from the University of the Arts London. Also, I am a qualified artist working in schools.  
 
I have had several solo exhibitions and many group exhibitions both in London and abroad. My paintings are in public and private collections in Nigeria, UK, France, Finland and Italy.  
 
My paintings are remarkable for their depths of expression and thought. I believe that art is life, a celebration and made to be enjoyed and appreciated. My artworks go beyond the aesthetic and delve deep into the narrative of my African roots, as well as my philosophical leaning and pursuits.  
 
I am eclectic in my approach to painting, and challenge myself with the mastery of various artistic media, such as acrylic, oil, pastel, charcoal and watercolour, even though I paint mainly in oil and acrylic."

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork   

 

It is said that "it takes two to tango." In every endeavour in life, two factors are at work to produce something further. This painting "The Search for Answers" looks at how to resolve a complex question and finding an answer. The problem posed by Hepatitis C today is very serious and poses a lot of questions about finding a lasting cure, but with our combined efforts, a solution will be found one day.
