Photos: Meet Peter Edochie’s Son Who Happens To Be A US Based Artist

Not many people know much about Uche Edochie, one of Pete Edochie’s six children. Apart from the popular Yul Edochie and Linc Edochie, both of whom are Nollywood actors, nothing much is said about the others. According to Brandafriq, Uche is also a creative like most of the family members are, except that he channels his into painting. Report has it that he has some meaningful fame as a skilled painter.

MutualArt classifies him as “Nigerian postwar and contemporary painter” because he was born in 1975, after the end of the Nigerian civil war. Some of his paint works are Life Lessons for our Children, Journey of a lifetime III, State of the Mind, War of the Roses, Mind and Memory, Memory Fades, What’s Love Got To Do With It?, Reflections, among many others.

Checkout his photos and works below;

At a book launching ceremony at Sheraton hotel, Lagos. Typically, I never like attending occasions except they are visual art related. Infact, I nearly bailed on my own wedding sixteen years ago. But I am here on an errand. My dad asked me to represent him so I obliged. I love the old man. But I seriously considered telling him that I couldn't go because I was terribly sick and that it might be Ebola. But when I answered the phone, he had asked me how I was doing and I said everything was fine. So there goes my excuse. I had my Saturday all planned. Deadlines everywhere. I was supposed to paint all day and all through Sunday as well and the only thing that was going to interupt my studio program was if my wife tripped and fell on top of me like over and over again. Then and only then will I change my programme. Meaning of course that I would have to call my clients, apologize for not delivering and tell them the dog ate my home work or something. Anyway, I made the book launch and still painted a bit, binged on Netflix and the wife tripped and fell on top of me four times. I don't mean to brag but I have a feeling my weekend was better than yours. 😁 #weekends #booklaunch #netflix #falling #rambling #trashtalk

Reshaping the Narrative Acrylic on Canvas 2019 We have to tell our own stories. Nobody can do it better. When others tell it, it is never completely fair. Woman, you have to tell your own story. Many say you are nothing but man's play thing and they back it up by pointing to your endless commodification of self. That is a brutal assessment but could they be right? Do they have a point? Whatever your opinion is, let that be your story. Let your response manifest outwards in how you present and value yourself. That is the ultimate clap back and it is a good start. Rumour has it that you have been invited to the table of equals. Many have fought way too hard for that equality on your behalf. Please don't trivialize their efforts and cede your power to man who has owned you and continues to pay for you. If it feels like I am yet another man trying to tell you what to do, you are right. Except that this is not about me. It is about your life. It is about your future and you getting that which you have been asking for. Equality, right? Sure. But something has got to give. You cannot have it both ways. #art #painting #contemporaryart #modernart #africanart #nigerianart #portraits #figurativeart #genderequality #instagramart #studioart #studioartist #ucheedochie

Putting finishing touches to Anyanwu. It is part of a series of work I am doing on the subject of hope. Anyanwu in Igbo means the sun. The sun is a symbol of many things, one of which is hope. Anyanwu is part of a body of work that will be on display in my joint exhibition with Ayoola Gbolahan from the 18th – 27th of April, 2019 at Didi Museum on 175 Akin Adesola street, Victoria Island, Lagos. The exhibition is curated by Ify Dozie and C.J Jibunoh.

Title: There is a Party in Iyana Ipaja Acrylic on canvas 2018 There is a party in Iyana Ipaja. Sherifat and Sina had a baby girl and the child dedication ceremony is on Friday. Sheri and Sina live in a one room apartm!ent and rumour has it that Sina got laid off and has been without a job for months. A while ago, I asked an elderly man a question. I said, 'Baba, the Yorubas know how to party like it is 1999 and that goes for both rich and poor. How are the poor able to afford this? ' And he replied, 'My son, where there is a will, there is a way. Life is short. You have to enjoy it while you have it'. So there you go. There is a party in Iyana Ipaja. Sina, his family and friends will eat, drink and dance into the night because when life gives you lemons sometimes, you give it the middle finger. Half Way through a Thousand Miles exhibition featuring Uche Edochie and Tolu Aliki kicks off tomorrow 11th October at Alpha One Tower, Eko Atlantic City Opening Ceremony: 5 – 9pm Other days: 10 am – 6pm #halfwaythroughathousandmiles #artexhibition #lagosartexhibition #nigerianart #ucheedochie #tolualiki #berealproperties
