Presentation
This is an exhibition of paintings by Chika Idu, a Nigerian artist and Christine Drumond, a French Brazillian artist. Chika Idu (born 1974) comes from Delta State, Nigeria and studied painting at the Auchi Polytechnic in Edo State from 1993-1998. He was instrumental in the creation of Defactori Studios which today has become an art movement amongst Nigeria’s new generation artists; he also created Nigeria’s first Water Colour Society of Artists (SABLES). Idu has been a part of numerous group exhibitions and has had five solo exhibitions including at the Homestores and Terra Kultur Galleries in 2015.

Idu’s works are characterized by a heavy texture and hazy rendition technique, which he calls ‘light against visual distortion’. He is inspired by observing the behavior of light striking against visual imperatives like dust and misty fog. Chika’s works are inspired by everyday day living, For the past 16 years, he has been committed to exposing the plight of the African child through his work. Recently he began an environmental campaign on the health risks faced by children living in coastal slums. Besides teaching art at the French School Lycee Louis Pasteur, Idu works in his Ikorodu art studio in Lagos.

Contemporary artist Christine Drummond was born and raised in Brazil where she received a French education from the French Lycée in Rio. Christine Drummond creates vibrant oil paintings in her quest to bring joy to those who experience them. She has put down the brushes and works exclusively with a palette knife, creating textures that bring her shapes and colors to life on her canvas from oil paint.

From Sao Paulo to Monte Carlo, from New York to Sydney, Christine has gained much-deserved recognition from the art world. ‘I want to bring Joy through the choice of colors, the theme, the life and movement with each stroke of my palette knife. When I complete a painting, my strongest wish is that those who see it will be drawn into it and want to be part of the happy atmosphere.’
