Last night I was invited to, and attended the launch of Aabru Art’s Transcending Boundaries exhibition. It’s the second year of the show billed as the largest show of West African Art to ever be held in London.
I loved the works by Rom Isichei, especially Beguiled by the Red Book
Peace like a ruler by Kolade Oshinowo was very spiritual and uplifting.
I’ve recently had an education about African girls hair styles recently so I appreciated Braids by Kolade Oshinowo
But the sculptures by Bunmi Babatunde took the biscuit.
However my favourite was Kolade Oshinowo’s Asho-Ebi. It was explained to me why I see groups of people in London in the same fabric – they’re all off to the same wedding.
