 Chukwuma (b 1973) graduated from the prestigious Nsukka Art School, University of Nigeria, with a first class degree specializing in painting.

  
Curator of the exhibition, Sandra Mbanefo-obiago writes: “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 uses a combination of textures,  lines,  symbols and colours  laid out on painstakingly etched wooden panels.”
