I spent the better of Saturday, 28th October 2017 at an art exhibition at Echelon Heights of “Ingenium” an art collection by Prince Oteki. Ingenium is Prince Oteki’s second exhibition.
The exhibition was absolutely brilliant and the art completely took my breath away although I did not like the two paintings titled ‘Strength of a woman’ which i felt was limiting in its portrayal of women. My favorite painting was ‘Am not my hair’ which was just so powerful and intriguing.
Prince Oteki was born in 1980 in Port Harcourt where he still lives and works as a self-taught artist. He has been painting for 25 years and has spent that time gathering knowledge and developing his craft.
