A private viewing of the “Figures and Colours” exhibition featuring three painters: Uchenna Ohagwu, Dodd Brown and Stanley Dudu is to take place at Angels and Muse in Ikoyi a day before it opens to the public on Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 September 2022.
According to an invitation to the event, “Our informed choices of these three Masters were based on their unique perceptions and expressions of figures, compositions and colours. We assure you of a fulfilling and delightful viewing experience”.
Ohagwu engages with different media and experiments with unique elements, styles and forms. His evolution as an artist spans the periods of grounding in drawing during the early 80s and the influence of Uli scripts from his village to the urban explosion of the golden era of hip-hop in the city partly stimulated by comics and graffities.
He attended the Institute of Management and Technology (IMT) Enugu and completed his training in 2003, acquiring a HND in fine arts and design.
Brown, a mixed-media and contemporary Nigerian artist who works with woven fabrics, newsprints and canvas obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree at the University of Port Harcourt, Rivers State from the Department of Fine Arts and Design.
Dudu’s multi-thematic explorations are carried through with a multi-media ability that allows him to express his ideas and concepts in various media particularly in charcoals and pastels. He has three solo exhibitions and well over thirty group exhibitions nationally and internationally under his belt.
Time is 1:00 pm to 7:00 pm on each day, while Angels and Muse is at 5, Sumbo Jibowu Street off Ribadu, Ikoyi, Lagos.
