BIOGRAPHY of the artist FRITZ MILLEVOIX

Fritz Millevoix painting

Fritz's painting demonstration at Nicole's Gallery in Chicago

        Fritz Millevoix was born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, in 1957 and began painting at the age of 14.  Despite his four years of formal training, he prefers to work in the so-called naïve or primitive style. He moved to the United States in 1988 and currently resides in Chicago. 

        Mr. Millevoix has had exhibitions in Italy, Germany, Haiti, and Puerto Rico. In the United States he has shown in New York, Philadelphia, Florida, Atlanta, Chicago and now Cleveland. He has received numerous awards as well as illustrated several children’s books.

        His paintings are alive with a brilliance of color, pattern and meticulous detail. His color spectrum is broad and rich with jungle themes full of colorful animals, mountain village scenes, underwater mermaid villages, Caribbean beach scenes and landscapes of depth and mystique.  Every scene depicted in a Millevoix’s paintings is lush with nature, joy and fantasy.

BIOGRAPHY of IFEYINWA UMEIKE

Ifeyinwa UmeikeIfeyinwa Umeike was born on the 21 of April, 1972, the fourth in a family of seven children.  She hails from the Igbo tribe of eastern Nigeria whose people are renown for their commerce, bravery and artistry.  She is a graduate of economics from the University of Ibadam.  She says that art constitutes the greater part of her life, although she received no formal training in this field.

She paints in gouache and has adopted the use of local Nigerian fabrics which add a touch of bright color to the delicate pastel effect of the paintings.  The technique of stencil-like cut outs must be carefully observed to appreciate the fine craftsmanship of each painting.

Apart from selling and exhibiting her art in several galleries in Nigeria, she has made a book cover design for the American Women’s Club in Nigeria.  It is entitled Lagos Easy Access.  She currently resides in Canada.
