Kelechi Amadi-Obi

Kelechi Amadi-Obi studied law at the University of Nigeria but soon set aside his law practice to pursue an artistic career. His quick rise in art circles can be attributed to his informal art development while he was a student. He took many extracurricular classes in illustration and honed his skills as a graphic artist by making posters for student union activities and social engagements. His early work in portrait painting showed remarkable talent in rendering figurative images. Later, after trying out several painting media, he discovered a particular love for watercolor paints. Their delicate transparency enabled him to create enthralling figurative paintings and verdant landscapes. He used black and white ink washes for a while and composed his paintings based on his photographs of the models. In time, Amadi-Obi focused on photography as his primary medium and has since become acclaimed as a photographer, particularly for his documentation of major figures of contemporary culture.
