~The Colour of the wind ~ Chidi Okoye.

I have never wanted to paint at this age for the love I have for sculpture, but all that changed when I was confronted by the cold wind of Canada," says Chidi. "I lacked space which is vital for huge sculptures, and even for the small ones. The only option was to get some canvases and work in my room, which was not the best of places to work. But at the time it was the best— at least to save my fingers from the frost bits of cold wind."

Beautiful words by Nigerian born Chidi A. Okoye. The breathtakingly talented sculptor/painter trained at the Institute of Management and Technology, Enugu, Nigeria, and was Lecturer in Fine Arts for six years at Federal Polytechnic in Oko, Nigeria.  Chidi's re-location to the Vancouver was a struggle at first & he braved through the cold winter nights by painting canvases of his feelings. The results are an inspiringly colorful and emotional collection of poetry and painting which depicts the richness of his culture and heritage. Okoye manages to take us through his emotions, nostalgia, love & pride of where he comes from & what he believes in. There is something honest about his work, so honest, its endearing. Paintings are available for purchase at Would make a fabulous mothers day pressie.
