Nigerian artist Gerard Osenele Ukpan charts his artistic and personal evolution.

About

As an artist I am obsessed with ‘contrast’ as it relates to everything in life. I see life as a long road that leads somewhere we are yet to fathom. Many people call this destination death. The question is: Is it our level of consciousness that interprets this unusual phenomenon as death?

I think we just evolve, either consciously or unconsciously and at the end of this life the process continues albeit the consciousness will be different. I have evolved as an artist, hence the title of the show ‘EVOLUTION’. I have been through different phases studying every piece of art that comes my way. From a poet who used to draw with ballpoint pens I turned into the artist that I am now – painter, sculptor and life coach.

Over the past 8 years I have explored different forms of art trying to figure out what works best for me. I started with ballpoint pens and proceeded to using acrylic, oil, pastel and clay. My favourite style is chiaroscuro and I use it to create a sense of engagement with the viewer. presently I work at as a volunteer at the University College London Hospitals (UCLH) where I use visual art to comfort the patients as a way of assisting the healing process.
