Chibụike Ụzọma (b. 1992 Port Harcourt, Nigeria) lives and works in New Haven,
Connecticut. He is a multidisciplinary artist working with painting, photography, drawing,
texts, and video. By treating art as a subject-object in and of itself, Chibụike’s practice
engenders the image with the complexes of narratives and the superstitions of meaning—making subject matter a pretext for performance, and context, a fluid ground. He received
his BFA from the University of Benin, and an MFA from Yale University School of Art.
Chibụike has been invited to participate in projects, exhibitions (solo and group), festivals, and residencies by institutions in Africa, Europe, Asia, and North America.
The artist’s Curriculum Vitae is available upon request.
