Exodus, an exhibition of paintings, mixed media and installation by Nyemike Onwuka will be held tomorrow Saturday, November 12 at the Signatue Art Gallery, Awolowo Road, Ikoyi, and Lagos. The exhibition, which kicks off by 2:00pm prompt will be showing 26 works, of drawings, paintings, mixed media and installations in a one-man show with a free and open reception to kick off the events.
Considering the fact that Onwuka and his style have evolved through the years of practice and showing in exhibitions in major cities around the world including Europe, Middle East, UK and America, it doesn’t come as a surprise that his paintings can be found in private collections of prominent citizens worldwide.
Exodus is synonymous with Onwuka’s artistic evolution; from his experimental/figurative platform he sprouted the distinctively unique style of elegant urban decay. Once again we see today a style driven on progressive transitional journey using text and patterns ingeniously to project his thoughts onto canvas and also to embellish. The evolution of art is a result of experimentalists of the art world, a mind class of artists, which Onwuka over the years has proven to belong to.
