My name is Chika. A Nigerian born, seasoned Londoner, now living in Shanghai!
After 15 years working in web and TV design, I’m currently lucky enough to have the opportunity to dedicate my time to my personal artwork… it’s an exciting time! A serious colour addict, I love mixing paint, pen, and pixels, always focusing on the abstract and how the simple things have hidden beauty. Currently obsessed with patterns, from organic forms to type elements, I’m exploring the world in between and enjoying it’s infinite possibilities.
Art has always been a big part of my life, growing up in Nigeria I was inspired by it’s colour and chaos, it’s tropical environment and by the brilliant art work in my home. I was lucky enough to have beautiful original prints on my walls by local successful artists who were friends of my grandparents.. I’m still inspired by everything around me and the wonderful people in my life, especially my 3yr old son and my wonderful husband and family. My now well traveled background gives me a colourful outlook on the world and a positive influence in my work.
