Ubiomo Chinedu Ogheneroh (Enugu) captures the beauty of African women in his digital art, through the art form of Kpuri.
I am a professional digital painter and an abstract creative. In my work, I aim to capture the beauty of the African woman: her elegance, style, and beauty. I am deeply inspired by her. I also draw inspiration from the people around me, the things in my surroundings, the colors and abstract images I see. I have a huge passion for stylised forms and traditional patterns, I love the way they harmonize and blend with each other in the formation of a piece.
The style of my art is called Kpuri, which involves abstraction and the use of warm colors. My works are digitally rendered, stylised forms.

This piece strives to capture the beauty of documenting memories: the good, the bad, and the ugly; and remembering how modern technology has made it possible.

These works were inspired by the beauty of African women. They aim to celebrate their color.
Lady in Red, 2017
In this piece, I try to depict the elegance of an African lady. I used thick lips to place an emphasis on the origin of the figure, as it is believed that African ladies possess this feature.

In these pieces, I blend the social trends in our society with the African woman to explore how it has influenced her life.
