Somerset House to showcase Mr Eazi’s artwork in upcoming exhibition
Nigerian singer and Banku pioneer Mr Eazi is set to exhibit artwork at Somerset House in October as part of the 1-54 Contemporary African Art Fair.
According to The Vinyl Factory, the exhibition will see Mr Eazi collaborate with 13 African artists to create bespoke artwork for each song from his yet untitled debut album, due on October 27.
“Inviting artists to create for the album was from my passion for creativity and expression. I formed a true bond with many of my artist friends. The artworks visually unlock the ideas, emotion, and energy within my music,” Mr Eazi said about the project.
London’s exhibition will take place as part of the 1-54 Contemporary African Art Fair from October 12 to 15. The fair will also feature 110 emerging and established artists from Africa and its diaspora.
