Uchay Joel Chima fuses practicality and industry in artistic form. He has been described as obsessed with the possibility of material. His work is scoped across structural questions regarding society and the environment. Using string wax sand charcoal sacks and paint that depict memory and imagination in mixed media experiments, the results are layered explorations that fuse bright colors, circles and lines. In 2015/2016 he participated in the Platteforum’s residency in Demver, Colarado. He has also been in residence, at Vidgis Holen Studio in Karlstad, Sweden; Vermont Studio Center, Johnson, Vermont; Spark Box Studio in Ontario, Canada and also at the One Minute Foundation in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Uchay’s works have continued to evolve, remaining relevant to developments in contemporary art. PRESS University of Arkansas, Art Base
