Onyedika Chuke's (Onitsha, Nigeria) practice is currently focused on an ongoing essay composition. The essay is entitled “The Forever Museum” in which the artist analyzes history/historiography of museum objects, and presents three dimensional models (sculptures) based on the disjunctures between historical architecture, its politics and the human body. He studied at The Cooper Union (BFA, 2011).  His works has been shown at the Bronx Museum  for the Artists in The Marketplace and at Verbier 3D Art Residency/Commission Verbier, Switzerland. He recently has been selected for the newly created Queens Museum Studio Program.

Onyedika's residency is organized within the framework of Residency Unlimited ’s partnership with Casita Maria Center for Arts and Education and is supported by the American Chai Trust.
