The Royals are Here: 1979 Thunderbird Acrylic on canvas 2019 Every car tells a story. The 1979 Thunderbird takes me down memory lane. Growing up in a middle class family, vehicles like this one were driven by those 'rich and privileged people' and not for us. I remember the first time I sat inside an air-conditioned vehicle. Ntu oyi! If you are Ibo, you can relate. It was as if I had died and gone to heaven, where life was literarily cooler and trendier. I was just a stunned little kid who earlier believed the best things in life were chasing grasshoppers and watching Danger Mouse. I loved Danger Mouse so you can imagine my shock. Looking back now, these things aren't that special anymore. We have all grown up and many of us have done well and owned a few nice whips ourselves. An air-conditioned car and house in the tropics is just a basic requirement nowadays. But I must say that for a long time, I believed women were the sexiest creatures with the best curves until I discovered super cars and nearly proposed to an Aston Martin Rapide. So I paint both chicks and whips. I am a story teller. I see lots of stories in both man and machine. #art#modernart#modernnigerianart#africanart#africanartist#painting#artexhibition#carlovers#supercars#thunderbird#f1#vintagecars#ucheedochie

Obsession can be a dirty word. It is all about context. If you are obsessed with someone such that you stalk them, take pictures of them and pin them up on a wall, serial killer style, that's a problem. But if you are devoted to your craft and you possess an uncompromising propensity for excellence, beauty and technological transcendence, you are also obsessed but the good type. Find a really good cause in life and don't just be passionate about it. Be obsessed.

#Repost@africanartcollector (@get_repost) ・・・ Serenity and Grace By @ucheedochie Acrylic on Canvas 2018 Serenity and grace. That is how I remember her. Children notice everything. It is hard to believe because of how absent minded they appear while playing but they do. They notice the demeanor, gesticulations, opinions and temperament of their parents. We don't even realise how much attention we are paying until we grow up and realise that in many ways, we have become our fathers and mothers. One of my most enduring memories of my mother growing up was how calm and graceful she was and still is. Hers was a posture and aura that was very reassuring especially in tormentous times. It didn't matter what was happening at the time. Whenever mother walked into a room, everything was alright again. Life was suddenly promising again. All was well in the world again. Serenity and grace. These two words best describe her. Isn't it ironic the way we clashed with our parents growing up because we felt that they weren't sufficiently driven and ruthless enough to grab life by the pony tail? And then we grew up and with maturity came clarity. Now we look back and in more ways than one, we wish we were just like our parents. Calm, graceful and always playing the long game.

The new body of work is here. . . A Contemplation In Disarray. Showing @thaithai.ng 2nd Floor, 16 Kofo Abayomi Victoria Island, Lagos 22nd December, 2018. 5-7 p.m. . . . "A Contemplation In Disarray" is a presentation of the beginning of a series of works that though different in style pose the same question "why are we the way we are?". The works presented are the beginning of an artistic unraveling, that looks at nature as the firm placement of humanity's origins in both mythology and science. . The works split into two different themes; the first theme titled "Who is in the Garden?" seeks to explore the questions of humanity's place in nature and humanity's gaze on nature: are we a part or nature? are we apart from nature? and can we simultaneously be both?. The second theme "Colors of Man" is an exploration into Masculinity; what it means to be a man, how one becomes that and how that may be different from being a mere human being. The works on display represent where this series begins to unfold, so your thoughts are welcome as no one of us is greater than the entire whole. . . Special thanks to @tusharhathi, @maximeaner and @authorwales who i consistently disturbed with questions during this process and were kind enough to lend me their ears everytime. . . I started the year looking for a new direction for my work and I am grateful I found it. I also experimented with making some music during this process, so you can listen to "A Contemplation In Disarray" (tune playing on the background from the link in my bio). . . #partsofpaintings#modernNigerianArt#nigerianart#artinafrica#lagosart#contemporarynigerianart#nigeriancontemporaryart#partsofpaintings gerianart #nigeriancontemporaryart#partsofpaintings#africancontemporaryart#contemporaryafricanart#contemporaryafricanart

Mother is Home Acrylic on Canvas 2018 I am trying for some reason to see the world through the eyes of a child. I was a child once. But I have almost forgotten what that felt like. Almost. One thing I never forgot though was the way my siblings and I felt each and every time our mother came home from work. It was magical. The way we ran to her and hugged her like we hadn't seen her in ten years. That is the magic of motherhood. It doesn't matter your status in life. If you are someone's mother, take pride in the fact that for just a few people on this planet, you mean the world. I am not a woman but I hope my kids are half as excited when they see me. I hope I mean that much to them. I get a lot of hugs from them though so that's a good sign. But I am not sure if it's because of the ice cream I bring home every week or that they are really happy to see their tired old man at the end of every working day. Let's hope it's the later. #art#africanart#nigerianart#painting#contemppraryart#contemporaryafricanart#nigerianartist#instagramart#instagram#modernart#modernnigerianart#studioart#motherhood#ucheedochie

"It's Always Sunny On The Outside" . . I have been trying to investigate the perception of what it means to "Be A Man" by juxtaposing wobbly lines and masculine features. I can not remember a time when I have been totally comfortable with the notions of what it is that a man must do, or how it is a woman must be seen to be. It is pretty obvious that these roles were engineered on the fly by generations before us. . . Because we expect women to talk more, no one talks about the pressures placed on men, and it's a clear reason we have more men dying by suicide. Someone really close to me was battling depression, and for the first time in a long while I cried, because it's devastating to see some one you genuinely love go through something you don't have a quick fix for (another must know masculine know-how). . . Check up on your friends, don't glaze over the things that might seem out of character. Be never too busy for those you love. . . This is the first thing I have painted that Im actually going to keep for myself. . . #NoToDepression#modernNigerianArt#nigerianart#artinafrica#lagosart#contemporarynigerianart#nigeriancontemporaryart#partsofpaintings#artinlagos#lagosartscene#artinAfrica#artfromAfrica#contemporaryafricanart

The Wings of Hope Acrylic on canvas 2018 'I have come to accept the feeling of not knowing where I am going. And I have trained myself to love it. Because it is only when we are suspended in mid - air with no landing in sight, that we force our wings to unravel and alas begin our flight. And as we fly, we still may not know where we are going to. But the miracle is in the unfolding of the wings. You may not know where you're going, but you know that so long as you spread your wings, the winds will carry you' - C.

Moving Up Acrylic on canvas 2018 A piece I did in celebration of modern Nigerian architecture and the rapid developement of our Nigerian cities. This reminds me of a brief discussion I had with a veteran art collector recently. He was at this last exhibition of mine, bought some art and told me that while he loved new pieces like this one, he wouldn't be able to resell them at Sothebys in the future because they aren't typical of African art. I smiled. I understand him though but it just reminds me that our job as cultural tutors is a never ending one. Lived experience is valid experience. We cannot live in modern apartments, duplexes and mansions and then when it is time to paint how and where we live, we begin to paint huts and shanties because that is what is accepted as 'African' in creative terms. That is self deprecating and dishonest, even if it is good business. An imagery doesn't have to be indigenous to be African. When we intigrate a modern image or motif into our art work and present it as African art, we are not claiming ownership for something we did not invent. We are simply owning our experience of that thing as part of the reality that has contributed and shaped who we are as Africans. We did not invent Coca Cola for instance but we consume it. It is part of our lived experience and therefore part of our contemporary culture. In that regard, the Coca Cola motif is just as african as a hut or drums or cowries because they are all part of our culture now. Yeah. It was an interesting and amusing conversation though.

Be Real Properties and Lifestyle in conjunction with the Edge Studio and the Art Studio is proud to present 'Half Way Through a Thousand Miles', an exhibition of recent works by Tolu Aliki and Uche Edochie. Date: October 11 - 14, 2018 Venue: Alpha One Tower, Eko Atlantic City, Lagos - Nigeria Opening Cocktail Party: 5 pm - 9 pm Other Days: 10am - 6pm daily Engaging their signature styles of expression that continue to evolve as they take on new issues and subject matter, and drawing on satirical symbolisims of human, animal and inanimate forms, Edochie and Aliki wade into the Nigerian journey of the past four decades with musings on the challenges of living and the role of optimism in sustaining that primal human drive to thrive. Aliki brings his signature childlike stylization of form and use of pure colour to contrast the extravagant splays of Edochie's strokes verging towards a dangerous, passionate cadence. Aliki's work playfully yet emphatically holds attention in its stylization of form, while Edochie masterfully weaves explosive colours through bodies making them shimmer like beings stepping into celestial lights - Tony Nsofor #artexhibition#art#contemporaryafricanart#modernart#nigerianart#modernnigerianart#lagosartexhibition#ucheedochie#tolualiki#berealproperties

Powerful Art by @tolualiki - The European Dream... Acrylic on canvas 4ft x 4ft 2016 #regram "This is one of my exclusive paintings. In this work, I tried to capture the issue of African migrants going to Europe. The slave trade in Libya is as a result of Nigerians and other Africans struggling to escape into Europe. Libya being a country run by several Rebel factions have seized this as a good course for extortion. Would you really call this extortion when a rebel arrests an illegal border-crosser and asks him to "bail" himself or remain "in prison" as it is in most cases? Or is it slave trade when a wealthy Libyan then offers to pay for your "bail" in exchange for your 2years of "free service" on his farmland? No, I'm not in support of slave trade, and I never will be. All that I am saying is that we should know slave trade when we see one. Accordingly, until African leaders sit up, and do more work to better the lives of their citizens at home...create a robust economy, as well as a safe and conducive environment for us all to be productive, these trips will continue.

No, I'm not in support of slave trade, and I never will be. All that I am saying is that we should know slave trade when we see one. Accordingly, until African leaders sit up, and do more work to better the lives of their citizens at home...create a robust economy, as well as a safe and conducive environment for us all to be productive, these trips will continue. I heard that people were cheaper last "Black" Friday! It's that crazy! #stopslavetrade#libya#modernnigerianart#tolualiki#tolualikipaintings#africancontemporaryart#africanmigrants
