My name is Chibuike Clement Obioha. I am a visual artist and a freelance Illustrator and caricaturist located in Imo state. My passion to effectively express myself encouraged me to develop my style and paint both digitally and traditionally. I’m inspired mostly by what I see.
I’m currently studying Architecture at Federal University of Technology, Owerri.
Yes, I’ve always wanted to be an artist. It’s a part of who I am and who I’m meant to be.
I see each day as an opportunity to set and accomplish anything and to learn something new. So, basically I draw every day with any slightest opportunity I get because directly or indirectly it helps keep me mentally fit. I try out other activities afterwards.
My style is born out of passion and consistency in practice. Among the things i paint as an artist, Caricature painting is my favourite because it’s an interesting way to express ideas. I started doing caricature sketching in mid 2016, then digitally in 2017. The art of Caricature is like poetry, it allows one to express deep meanings with few strokes; so i see Caricature art as realism. I’m inspired by variety in faces of people, culture and environment. I’m also inspired by works of talented artists.
I work both traditionally and digitally. But most of the time I work digitally, which is more convenient for me.
I’m comfortable with PC.
I paint with Photoshop Cs6 and CC with my graphics tablet. I don’t use plugins.
Yes, sometimes. It’s not always easy to keep up with Nigerian politics. It’s a challenge for the year.
Yes. I don’t mind.
My favourite place in the world is Venice, in Italy.
I don’t use any social media tools at the moment.
Yes, I think so.
In your opinion, what is the future of art in Nigeria?
