UCHAY JOEL CHIMA
Since graduating from the Art School of the Institute of Management and Technology, Enugu, Nigeria in 1997, Uchay Joel Chima’s artwork has continued to evolve, remaining relevant to developments in contemporary art.
Weaving a tapestry of memory, imagination, societal happenings and emotion, Chima combines various found objects, including strings, sand, wax, with paint and other mediums in an aesthetic that informs his oeuvre. He creates thought provoking presentations, which address the realities around us whilst employing a mixture of conventional and unconventional approaches in his unceasing explorations.
