Houston TX based Artist Chu Okoli is an accomplished and world-renowned visual artist trained in classical Drawing and Painting. Taking inspiration from his background also as a Sculptor, Installation artist, Designer, Writer, Innovator and Visionary he forged a new style in painting using concentric circles as filter through which he sees the Universe and the world around him.


His work with concentric circles is a break from tradition. A lucid union of Art and Science. Inspired by the cyclical nature of life and his passion for Astronomy his works tell stories that explore the cyclical balance, symmetry and the energy which radiates consistently across time and space. He creates his circles all by free-hand, with precision and fluidity throughout his visual narratives. 


His groundbreaking style has won him numerous grants, awards and acclaim across the art world, including the Prestigious Adolph and Esther Gotlieb Foundation NY Grant for Accomplished Painters 2018. And the Medici Medal Award in Painting at the International Biennale of Contemporary Art, Florence Italy 2015.


  • Adolph & Esther Gotlieb Foundation NY Grant Award Winner in Painting, 2018. 

  • Medici Medal Award Winner in Painting at the 10th Edition of the Florence International Contemporary Art Biennale Italy, 2015.
