Amarachi is a multimedia artist who tends to communicate on issues related to culture, identity,sexuality, relationships, education

A prevailing subject in most of her paintings is the human figure, mainly in nudes which she finds ideal in creating narratives pertaining subjective emotions that the society and happenings arouse in us. In her use of colours, her approach is bold, expressive, and intuitive intending to obscure reality,as well as engaging the viewer visually and emotionally.
