My name is Oke Ugonna. I was born in Lagos Nigeria but moved to Wirral at the age of 11. I have always loved the visual arts and took a BA in Fine Art at Chester University. I was introduced to Abstract Expressionism and this has informed my practice ever since; I love the sense of depth and space that an abstracted landscape can reveal.
I mainly work on urban landscapes and portraiture. I am inspired by a whole host of portraitists from the 1600s to modern day and in this way feel connected to practice of fine art through the ages. I have also began to work with digital media using a stylus and ipad mainly; I feel it just adds to my practice.
