Artist Timothy UfuomaEfe Orikri
    “To me, a true work of art can be described as a juxtaposition of complexity and simplicity. Art must be filled with strong emotional content and be based on the perception, expectations and experiences of the artist. I always make every effort to create my paintings based on these three concepts, but most especially, art must be timeless, with as much intrinsic relevance in today's world as in the future.

     One of the major objectives in creating my paintings in my desire to fulfill an emotional response, rather than focusing on the subject matter. I always choose to present my work in strong, bold colors, with an overall reliance on lines and forms to give it its distinctive nature. Through the use of these colors and forms, the subject is transformed into its essential, formative concepts, both of simple and complex nature.” Artist Timothy Ufuoma-Efe Orikri.
