The exhibition features work...
The exhibition features work from the Lazarus project which explores West African masks, the idea of bringing life back to old, broken and discarded masks and restoring new life to the masks by merging it with real faces of african people.
Other works being exhibited includes the ‘When boys become men' project, which is a combination of mediums that evokes the notion that not everything is as it appears; it underlines a sense of tension between past and present. It explores what it means to be a boy and a man; simply that they are one, the same but tragedy may accelerate the man from inside the boy much sooner.
Exhibiting works from the ‘Human Suffering’ project exploring children affected by war and reminding us of past wars; to serve as a warning for todays current wars; the view that we in the 21st century have yet to learn from the suffering and wars of the past. Quote from the book of Ecclesiastes 1:4-11 sums it up “There is nothing new under the sun”. “Works were created by painting on real photographs of actual past wars, aim here is to remind and awaken the conscience of my viewers for change, that we may learn from the horrors of the past”.
Also showcasing some new unseen works along side three amazing artist Mayowa Ajagunna, Princess Idowu and Saman Gedara…..This group exhibition is not to be missed.
