9783847305958: Uche Okeke: Father of Modernist Art in Nigeria

Nigerian art tradition has witnessed tremendous growth and development in the last seven decades. A few visionary creative artists are responsible for this. Professor Uche Okeke stands unique among them. It is therefore not possible to study the Nigerian art without reference to the enormous contributions of this legendary artist. Our focus in this book therefore is to investigate, ascertain and document the extent to which these contributions aided the growth and development of art study and practice in Nigeria. Consequently, each of the seven chapters of this book constitutes definitive stages in the pursuit of our overall goal. From a historical brief on Uche Okeke, we undertook an in-depth exegesis of the origin and growth of the Nigerian art, which no doubt predates Uche Okeke. This enabled us to properly determine the period of Uche Okeke’s formal training in art as well as his involvement in the famous Zaria Art Society’s struggle. His teaching career at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, from where he launched his phenomenal development to art study and practice in the country was also comprehensively documented.
