Kelechi Amadiobi

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 traced 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 a remarkable talent for rendering figurative images. Later, after trying out several painting media, he discovered a particular love for watercolor paints: its 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 photograph of the models.
