Chinwe Uwatse is a painter. She works full-time as the general manager of Bang and Olufsen, Nigeria Limited. Despite her heavy administrative schedule, extensive social commitments and diverse professional obligations, she has worked very hard to maintain her profile as an artist. Living in Nigeria, Chinwe Uwatse’s central objective is to assist in the preservation of the female ethos in uli design forms. To this end, she has worked with a number of artists to transfer the decorative ethos of these ancient forms and motifs into contemporary styles and usages. By this means, they have kept decorative element of uli very much in national focus.  She works mainly in oil on canvas, acrylic on board and water color.
