Bernard Matemera (January 14th,1946-March 4th, 2002),lived his entire working life at Tengenenge Sculpture Village. He was the artistic and inspirational leader at Tengenenge and his relationship with Tom Blomefield, the founder of Tengenenge, was rich and deep. Matemera was a master of sculpting the conflict-character of the bizarre. His works twisted that which is familiar and trusted into something strange and disturbing. These unresolved clashes of incompatibles bewilder and disorient the viewer out of their accustomed ways of viewing the world - and confronts them with a radically different, inaesthetic perspective. A rather simple illustration of this, but no less striking for that, would be “Metamorphosis – Sitting figure” which portrays a human being transforming into an animal or is it an animal metamorphosing into a human? Internationally renowned, Matemera has been acknowledged amongst the best stone sculptors of our period

Chika Idu, one of Nigeria's most talented contemporary artists, has been growing in popularity since the start of his career. Chika was born on September 28th, 1974 in Niger Delta, Nigeria. He graduated from Nigeria 's art college Auchi Polytechnic in 1998, and has participated in numerous highly successful national group and solo exhibitions. The preparation that goes into Chika Idu’s canvases is prodigious. He never puts knife to canvas without exhaustive priming. This day long treatment involves over laying different colours of primer with an acrylic finish. It is this practice that provides the textual substance that bonds subjects to canvas and lends his works it’s contemporary antiquity. Idu’s works explore daily experiences and although fluent in several mediums, he is best known for his oil on canvas creations. Chika’s popular themes include children, female portraits, landscapes and African ceremonies.
