About Uréchi

urechi_portrait_about

Uréchi Oguguo (pronounced: /Oo-ray-chee/  /Uh-goo-goo-uh/) 

is a New York City-based, Lagos-born learner, spacemaker, storyteller, designer at 2x4, and creator + illustrator of Uré Unbothered @ureunbothered.

Their creative practice uses organic shapes and bold colors as tools to center and celebrate the necessary rest, care, and tenderness that is rarely associated with blackness, especially black womanhood. Through their works across a variety of design media including architecture, illustration, and technology, they explore elements of their personal life, aspirations, and identity.

Uréchi holds a Bachelor of Science in Architecture degree from the University of Texas at San Antonio, and a Master of Architecture degree from Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation. They currently serve as a Board of Director at Ubuntu Education, Inc. whose mission is to decolonize and recalibrate how architecture is being taught, designed, and experienced in order to pave way for more equitable and socially conscious architecture globally.
