Portrait of Kingsley Ogwara

Kingsley Ogwara (1975) has done his Bachelors in Fine and Applied Arts at Delta State University in Abrake, Nigeria and has lived and worked in Luxembourg for more than 10 years. He is both painter and sculptor and often works with massive compositions in which he intuitively seeks harmony and organic forms. His painting with palette knives in oil and acrylic paint is characterized by an abstract orchestration of colors and texture that seems to take on the form of human masses within which there is a lot to discover. His sculptures are organic forms, abstract or grafted on African or European images. He mainly works in clay, stone, wood and metal. Kingsley has participated in many group and solo exhibitions, amongst others in Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. He has been honored in Luxembourg with the prestigious Prix Pierre Werner by the Luxembourg Art Week in 2016.
