Nigerian artist: Ifeyinwa Umeike (aka Ify Ojo)

Ifeyinwa Umeike is an Igbo economics graduate, with no formal art training, who paints in gouache and Nigerian fabric cutouts:

Ifeyinwa currently resides in Canada, & her work can be seen at Galeria Quetzal in Cleveland, Ohio, and Nicole Gallery in McCormickville, Chicago. Click here for an article about Nicole Gallery.

"A Red Canoe" is my favourite: - I love the stark clarity of it, due to the white lines/outlines, & the colour combination.

You can see more of Ifeyinwa's art here.

You can find some of Kendall's vividly coloured, lively art at Bella Art Gallery in Springfield Lakes, and you can see Kendall's own website here.

I'm a fan of her "Drinks Anyone?", in Gallery 1. Check it out!
