PEOPLE'S PARADISE BY GERALD CHUKWUMA
The exhibition features 43 artworks including Chukwuma’s renowned wooden slats, as well as new watercolor paintings and sculptures, and powerful installations. Based on a theme of conflict resolution, People's Paradise is a visual narrative of the various constructs that result in social and economical upheaval, and how the Human Factor is the key to any progress.
“Chukwuma’s creative genius is not only technically impressive, it is also rich in message and medium,” comments Sandra Mbanefo Obiago, the exhibition curator. “His work is filled with intrinsic forms and symbols which clearly express an African aesthetic, but point to universal truths that are understood by everyone.”
People’s Paradise is sponsored by UBS, the global Swiss bank, and Veuve Clicquot of prestigious Champagne House, Möet Hennessy.
The exhibition opens to the public on March 21st and continues until April 30th, 2016.
