Gallery Statement

We are pleased to show you the intriguing works of FATE VII. Fate VII is the seventh edition of the ‘Residency Fate Exhibition’, an exhibition of works produced during the residency program, annually organized by the gallery. A program that brings artists from different cultural backgrounds, different in style and choice of medium, together in a space to execute their works. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic guidelines by the government, such gathering was exempted in the exhibition process. Each artist produced exhibited works from their different spaces.

This edition of the ‘Fate exhibition’ features works of different mediums and styles by, Afeez Adetunji, David Olatunde Taiwo, Joseph Bidemi, Samuel Olayombo, Aina Felix, and Raji Ade David.

The works on display are no doubt aesthetically created. The gallery in all fair assessment selected styles and artists whose works capture and reflect on society, human experiences, and issues that are important to us as a people. Afeez Adetunji is an in house artist whose works are mainly on canvas and wood, his woodworks are exceptional as he infuses recycled materials to create unique expressions. David Olatunde Taiwo has in no doubt grown in his wood panel mastery after his experience in three of the gallery’s ‘FATE Residency’ annual programs. His art is a fusion of African art forms, motifs, and patterns with a contemporary art form which he calls African synthesis. Joseph Bidemi, greatly nursed by the anthropology of emotion, he enjoys the distinct movement of the palette knife, which he uses to achieve tactile realism juxtaposed with subtle lines and strokes of vibrant colours. Samuel Olayombo Propelled by a strong passion to provoke thoughts through his creativity, the adventure has taken him through multiple creative phases as a landscape, still-life, and figure composition. Aina Felix is an impressionist painter who has been able to create and achieve his trend and style of mixed media with colourful impasto. He paints the everyday activities and life style of people in general. Raji Ade’s source of inspiration comes from his environment and it is usually based on his instinctive response to seeing something regarding light and colours

We are pleased to announce that the gallery will be partnering with Down Syndrome Foundation Nigeria (DSFN), DSFN is a not-for-profit association of children with Down Syndrome, as well as their parents, guardians, caregivers and other interested stakeholders, by donating part of the exhibition proceeds to its course.
