Uchenna Odukwe

Only In Dreams
ID Number: 0071

​Uchenna Odukwe draws on the eclectic imagery, color, and mood of his African cultural heritage, and with his sophisticated eye for contemporary design, he creates a unique form of African Abstraction that is uniquely his own.

Inspired by African drumming and dance, two of the continent’s oldest surviving traditions, Odukwe plays with line, color, and movement to create vivid paintings that spring to life with vital energy. Swirling, curling, and dancing across the canvas, Odukwe’s graceful lines take center stage in his works of varying abstraction.

Although many of the artist’s works delve into total abstraction, many others depict elegantly simplified figures, but each work, conjured in dreams, expresses the artist’s deep philosophical musing and inner psychological workings.
