The Artist Reviews - Fine Art - Chidi Okoye

Artist Reviews - Fine Art. Read what some art critics in different nations have said about the famous Nigerian sculptor, author, poet and painter Chidi Okoye.

These are what some art critics have to 
say about Chidi and his creations:

“… These art works express universal emotions, contemporary forms, and the global idealism of their creator” The Georgia Straight July 6 2000

"His works are very colorful."  Afro News, Vancouver, BC, April 1997

"His paintings are noble, vivid, honest and poetic."  Diversity News, Seattle USA, November 1995

". . . is a welcome addition to the lower mainland's Black community and his contribution to the arts in BC does our community proud. "Afro News, Vancouver.  September 1995

". . . he represents a new generation of artists who are taking steps further from the black power and identity concerns of their predecessors to embrace a global identity."  Diversity News, Seattle, USA, November 1995

“ . . . provides strong contrasts in feeling and use of the medium."  Burnaby Now, Burnaby, BC, 1995

". . . his art is not only an exploration of visual aesthetics but a creative search for the enthronement of saner values based on man's respect of his inheritance."  Vanguard, Nigeria, October 1993

"A personified trinity of competence, prestige and influence in his career."  The Guardian, Nigeria 1993

". . . a sculptor whose creative instances are clearly channeled towards a reflection of both his contemporary and cultural heritage."  Daily Times, Nigeria, April 3 1993

  "The works are apt reflections of both an artistic use of materials and the use of wood, stone, metal and concrete to represent the aesthetic dimension of the world view of Africa." Daily Times, Nigeria 1993.

"Okoye's thoughts and feelings as an African are deeply expressed in his art works."  Sunday Champion, January 24 1993

  "Concept and execution of his works features extensive creativity."  The Champion, Nigeria, January 1993

  "This social relevance of art works in terms of messages they convey, is the thrust of his new book Lamentation."  The Guardian, 1993

  "Chidi manages wood, metal, fiber glass and cement with great efficiency that one wonders if Chidi was born to rule these materials."  Mobil News, Nigeria, December 1993

  “ . . . an artist with a mission for cultural re-armament."  The Guardian, Nigeria 1993

  "Besides being socially conscious in the works, Chidi is a cultural irredentist."  The Guardian, Nigeria 1993

  “ . . . a cry of a man who has seen a solution to the problems of the society."  The Outlook, Nigeria, August 23, 1992
