Ubiomo Ogheneroh

 

Born on May 19, 1993, Ogheneroh who hails from Otor-Iyede in Delta State, is a graduate of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka. While studying here, he fell in love with uli. This ancient but waning art of tattooing by the Igbo women inspired him to commence work on his ‘Facial Series’ project, which gave birth to what he calls “Kpuri art” – the integration of patterns, lines, geometric shapes and African symbology. Kpuri art is based on beautifully patterned women’s faces because Ogheneroh believes the face is the first point of call when assessing beauty.
