Lagos Contemporary

This in my opinion is the most famous illustration of lagos and i thought it was perfect for our opening image and header. It just says so much about the city- contemporary, fast-paced, beautiful, a huster’s utopia.

Some people may look at this photograph and think “chaos” but I look at it and appreciate the beauty of the city. This illustration represents a lively, multi-faceted and tireless people also known as Lagosians.

P.S: I thought the photo will be incomplete without a random POPO lingering around somewhere. Can u spot the popo?? *rolling eyes*

Drawings, Water Colour and Pastel Art Exhibition

Society of Nigerian Artists (Lagos Charter) are hosting an exhibition of drawings, water colour and pastel art by artists such as Oliver Enwowu, Jeff Oneyere and Dotun Alabi.

The purpose of the exhibition is to restore the importance of drawings as a finished art form and to appreciate rarely used art forms in Nigeria, such as watercolour and pastel paintings. Actually coming to think of it, I can't remember the last time I saw a drawing in an art gallery asides from the last show I attended at the Omenka Gallery. If something is not done about this, finished drawings will soon be extict on the art scene in this country so this is a magnificent idea! Oui?

I expect this to be a subtle breath of fresh air so if you have the time (and cash) go bagsy yourself a delicate piece of art or if your like me, just observe.

Date: Saturday, 14th August- Saturday, 21st August 2010.
Venue: Ben Enwowu Foundation's art gallery, Ikoyi, Lagos.

PS: There's a clash of FSL's events here and coincidentally they are both rt exhibitions. Which will you attend on saturday? Omenka or Terra? I've made my decision. Whats yours?
