Growing up in Austria, Luxembourg, and Belgium, he delved into self portraiture early on.
Uzochukwu developed a digital practice, focussing on being othered, vulnerability, and the slightly surreal.
Often, his subjects are reflected in - or merge with - the nature that surrounds them. Lone introspection and devotion to something larger than themselves exist simultaneously.
He has collaborated with artists like Little Dragons, FKA twigs and Pharrell, been comissioned by Nike, Dior, and Hermès, and has exhibited at Bozar, Photo Vogue Festival, and Lagos Photo Festival.
He is working towards his first degree in Philosophy at HU Berlin.
