Chiamonwu Joy – Hyper-realistic Art.

‘Faded’

Nigerian Hyper realistic artist Chiamonwu Joy’s charcoal drawings blew me away! The intricate detail in her work is really spectacular. It takes months for Joy to craft this high standard of work, even viewers of her work have compared it to a black and white photograph. At just 22 years old, Joy’s work is beyond her years, pursuing art when she had no art teachers in her school.  It’s so exciting to see African art is starting to be shared more globally across the world, as it rarely shown in the media as often.

Joy’s work is really inspiring, I brought a charcoal pencil and started sketching again. Charcoal pencils allow you to create tiny markings compared to the chunky heads of the other charcoals. Hopefully with a bit more practice, my control of using charcoal pencils may improve. Yes indeed, Joy’s work definitely will encourage everyone to start drawing again.

I was born in Bedfordshire, England. I'm from a musical and artistic background, with creating music and writing songs from a young age. Still life drawing, carpentry and sculpture design is an area in Art that I have previously studied. I am B.A Sound Arts & Design student at London College of Communication in London, learning to become a Sound Practitioner in Sound Arts. I did a sound installation called, 'Bari (Home)' at Gallery 46, White Chapel, April 2019 about the cultural integration of the Tower Hamlet of London area. My influences have come form contextual art, artistes, music and sound, film and audio visual works. I'm intrigued by sound discovery and perception of the sounds we hear.
