An art exhibition of abstract paintings by Nigerian visual artist, Monsur Awotunde.
The artist has collected his observations from his migratory experience from several spaces- both home and abroad. In this abstract expressions, we find visual representation of ideas on the sociological effects of being in an unfamiliar space and the ambivalent experience of moving back home.
The exhibition will take an artistic perspective by use of colours and strokes to visualize socio-political lines, identity confirmed by individuals in certain spaces, and the feeling invoked by temporal and homely spaces.
