 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.

Contact the artist via Keith McFarlane (Portraits Africa) at editor@negativeentropy.net who will provide an introduction. Artist and buyer are free to negotiate on both subject and price. While the artist has provided a guide-price or price indication, the first step in any commission is that artist and buyer agree the price, size, subject and materials of the composition and its delivery date. Portraits Africa will then request the agreed commission fee from the buyer, and on receipt of that fee will advise the artist to start work. The fee will not be released to the artist until the work has been completed and delivered to the buyer. Should a dispute arise between artist and buyer, it is Portraits Africa that will adjudicate. For the service prospectus, Terms & Conditions, see Commissioning a Portrait.
