AN UGLY HEAD
Okewu Jonathan is my name, born in 1983. I live in Lafia, the capital of Nasarawa State, Nigeria. I am an academician with the Federal University of Lafia. I have been trained at undergraduate and postgraduate levels as a ceramic artist. I teach ceramics and art related courses at university level and love what I do. I constantly seek new ways of handling clay as a medium of my expression. I am gratified by endless possibilities that abound in working with clay in a conceptual fashion for the interrogational strength inherent in it. I aspire to become famous as a ceramic artist.
This ugly head is a monster that has no respect for humanity. This ugly head has driven everyone into hiding, crippled the economies of nations, prevented social interactions, and given a new method of survival to the entire world. ‘An Ugly Head’ is a metaphoric description of the Coronavirus and its disheartening effect on everything man has ever worked for. It is an ugly head because it has done more ugly things to humanity than what has previously been imagined. But the interventions made by science will surely bring an end to the Ugly Head.
