George Udenkwo
Udenkwo, George

George Chyke Udenkwo was born in 1967 in the troubled town of Newry, Northern Ireland. Half Nigerian, half Irish, he was raised in 70's England and to his everlasting chagrin missed out on the Punk era by a hairs breadth. "We left for Nigeria in '76, anarchy was just over the British horizon and art was about to change forever." But Nigeria was to reshape George's views in other ways. "You'd wake up one morning and the entire government had changed overnight, you knew the government had changed because all the TV stations were broadcasting the national anthem on a tape-loop. You very quickly had to forget the last Government ever existed."
