As the Sparks Fly Upward invites viewers to find solace in this often unrelenting world – particularly in Nigeria’s unremitting and stifling socio-political climate. His paintings reflect on life’s commonalities and complexities. Igwe describes his featured works as a manifestation of “permanence and striving;” striving to make the best with the cards one is dealt amidst the permanence of life’s oscillation between challenge and upliftment.
