Uzo Egonu’s use of exuberant colours and forms underlines his preoccupation and concern with his home country’s political struggles. Born in 1931 in Onitsha, Nigeria, Egonu came to England in 1945 at the age of 14. He studied fine art, design, and typography at Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts and has exhibited internationally in solo and group shows, including The Other Story at the Hayward Gallery in 1989.
