Ufuoma Isiavwe creates paintings that build emphasis on utilisation of the afternoon stages of life and fulfilment of purpose as well as the changing world of today. He started practicing art at age ten and spent many years learning fine and applied arts.
He studied Fine and Applied Arts at Nnamdi Azikiwe University, and specialised in painting. In addition, Ufuoma’s paintings are in numerous private collections. In his work Ufuoma often represents traditional and contemporary ideas combined with traditional technique. Ufuoma now passes his knowledge by teaching in schools and taking on apprentices in his studio. He continues to explore new ways to share his contemporary and cultural traditions. Ufuoma lives in Lekki Lagos.
