Kingsley Ogwara (1975) studied his bachelors in Fine and Applied Arts at Delta State University in Abrake, Nigeria and resides and works in Luxembourg. He is a painter and sculptor and works often with mass compositions, in search of harmony and organic patterns and forms.

His paintwork with knives in oil and acrylic on canvas are characterized by abstract orchestrations of colors and texture which seem to take on the form of masses of. His sculptures in clay, stone, wood or metal consist of organic concave and convex forms, mostly abstract or inspired by African or European images and symbols.

Ogwara has participated in many group- and solo exhibitions, amongst others in Luxemburg, Netherlands, Belgium, France, Germany and Austria and was awarded amongst others the prestigious Prix Pierre Werner for his paintings in Luxembourg in 2016. At the Luxembourg Art Week 2019, he was nominated again with his Transfiguration sculpture series for the Grand-duc Adolphe award.
