Welcome to the online virtual gallery of OYOROKO OCHUKO KENNETH, a native of Nigeria West Africa. An African artist who demonstrates his artistic genius in oils, water colour, acrylic and pencil drawings also with stone, mild steel,resin and wood in sculpture. Through his extraordinary ability and remarkable diversity, he gives a moving insight into the African culture. OYOROKO art drains strength and depth from the deep-rooted African traditions and cultures especially those of his Niger-Delta area, but he is not limited by this traditionalism. Not only does OYOROKO excel in the realistic aspect of life forms it spans the abyss into the world of contemporary art and abstract expressionism, putting his all into every piece of art that he produces. OYOROKO love is immediately visible to the viewer. One cannot help but be moved by his inspirational interpretations of life.

He has this say “Art in its entirety is unlimited by way of expression; my artworks are statements provoked by actual events, imagination, personal experiences and reflections of my immediate environment. 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 would be pure and serene or troubling and depressing but yet so inspirationally beautiful”. . Please do sit back, feel free to linger, browse and thanks for visiting my site.

Born, raised and educated in the oil rich Niger-Delta region of Nigeria, West Africa., OYOROKO OCHUKO grew up to find himself in a creative oriented household.

Before OCHUKO was seven, he could create native terracotta pots and miniature figurines to the admiration of many.

He had his early education at Ughelli his native town in Delta State, Nigeria from where he became known as an outstanding artist amongst his contemporaries even before he was seventeen years old. OCHUKO gained admission into the famous University of Port-Harcourt Creative Art School in the early 90’s, where he graduated with an upper honours degree in Visual Arts.

His superlative talent and enthusiasm in his work earned him the Deans subject prize award for “Best graduating student” in Creative Art class of 1993-97 amongst other awards. This young Creative Artist has other renowned Artists like Dr. Bruce Onobrakpeye, Prof. J.T Agberia and Dr. Frank Ugiomoh as role models. OCHUKO is a full time practicing studio artist with Studio/Galleries in Port-Harcourt, River State and Warri, Delta State both in Nigeria.
