Bertha Onyinyechi Onyekachi, also known as BOO describes herself as a happy artist. Specialising in painting, she trained with renowned master Wallace Ejoh who influenced her brush work approach to painting.
The graduate of Fine and Applied Arts from the University of Benin said her first encounter with painting was when she majored in painting in the university. “Right now I’m painting professionally and this is just the beginning for me. Watch out.”
On what inspired her art, Bertha mentioned the female figure. “I’m greatly inspired by the strength she possesses which makes her a unique being first created out of bone not dust; her curves, her breast which signifies her life giving nature, her ability to multitask with so much patience and grace. Her form is amazing.”
