With his sculptures, Okoro simplifies the forms to achieve clear lines, smooth and organic textured surfaces, while playing with the scale and proportion of specific features within figurative sculptures. His work is available in a variety of multi-coated, earthy elements. He searches for his own 'Piece of the Rock', so to say, carving and moulding an artistic niche for himself. Finding words to express or describe his portfolio of works, is an art form in itself, and is, thus, left to the eye and soul of the observer.
