Manny Chukwu was born and raised in Enugu Nigeria and came to New York in 2011 at the age of 14. He is currently a member of the Men’s Basketball team at the University of Guelph and is studying Studio Art and Marketing Management. Manny is a rising local star not only in basketball but in visual art. Manny has exhibitions at Rye Country Day School, Katonah art museum, Suffield Academy and Congregation Emmanuel Temple, Rye, NY.
The scene of Manny's Chukwu's college experience had long been dominated by basketball. What most didn't know about this rising star was the creative genius hidden within him. As a leading a visual artist with over 100 works of art, displays and commissioned projects, how could we showcase Manny's talent to his basketball infused world?
For this project we decided to focus on Manny the artist. The softer and creative side to the basketball star. This would mean selecting muted creative and white space (ph how we love white space). An expertly crafted Content management system to handle the magnitude of the ART came in handy to tuck experiences away in every page. The central themes of this project were founded on the concepts of simplicity, ease and grace.
