ART STATEMENT

OYOROKO OCHUKO KENNETH is my name and I am An African artist who demonstrates his artistic genius in oils, water colour, acrylic and pencil drawings also with stone, resin, mild steel and wood in Sculpture. Through my extraordinary ability and remarkable diversity, I gives a moving insight into the African culture. My art drains strength and depth from the deep-rooted African traditions and cultures especially those of my Niger-Delta area.
Not only do I excel in the realistic aspect of life forms it spans the abyss into the world of contemporary art and abstract expressionism, putting my all into every piece of art that I produces.
My love for the work I create is immediately visible to the viewer, hence one cannot help but be moved by my inspirational interpretations of life
I strongly believe that “Art in its entirety is unlimited by way of expression; my artworks are statements provoked by actual events, personal experiences and reflections of my immediate environment e.g The Environmental degradation of My Niger Delta area due to oil exploration by Multinational oil giants and the age long economic and material neglect of the region by inept successive Government inspires some of my art themes that seek to advocate social justice and equality for my people., but I am by no means limited by this traditionalism.
I try as much as possible to distinguish between order (clarity of forms) and expression (purity of sensation).That’s why a work I create could be pure and serene or troubling and depressing but yet so inspirationally beautiful”.
Please do feel free to linger, browse and enjoy my interpretations of life and thanks for visiting my site.
