Omenihu was a little boy caught in a civil war that ravaged th east of Nigeria, the Biafran War.
He came to the United States and trained as an artist and broadcaster, and has for more than 2 decades worked in New York and Philadelphia. And painted.
I met him at a celebration at St Cyprian's Roman Catholic Church in Philadelphia. He was quiet and polite, and he told me he was an artist. He sent me the link to his virtual studio, and it made my day! I visited him in his studio, and photographed a few of his paintings.
The one that grabbed my heart immediately was the picture of the woman feeding the villagers, his testament to the hope and love that was shown by the victims inside Biafra, who had escaped genocide and now faced starvation. His painting shows how beautiful is the human spirit, how faith and hope can overcome adversity, even as around them, many were dying. You can see the painting and listen to the artist talk about it on this site, click here.
