Charles Okereke is a multi-media artist, whose works spans from painting, photography, sculpture and furniture design and making.

His works are research oriented, and verges more on humanity and the environment either through direct documentary photography for archival purposes, as a resource material for a re-interpretation of the documented object into broad based applications, as installed forms or developed to applied utilitarian purposes.

Okereke’s photographic sojourn is branching to near abstraction, which at face value does not reveal any obvious statement, but becomes apparent on closer examination.

Okereke is a member of photography Collective, Black Box, and also a founding member of the Trans-African Photography Road Trip group – Invisible Borders. 

He has appeared locally and internationally in major Photographic events.
