I had the chance to swing by the Modzi AIR Exhibition, highlighting work by Kolapo Olurunyemi, a Nigerian based science-inspired artist. The exhibit sheds light on the traditions and identity of Africans through the different unique tribal marks, whilst imagining a futuristic African.
Kolapo’s larger pieces are oil-on-canvas, with the notable one being of Mumba Yachi, one of Zambia’s most eclectic artists. Kolapo’s sketches on the other hand, are a mixture of pencil, pen and chalk. You can still see this beautiful work and interact with Kolapo at Modzi Art until Tuesday, 22 September 2022.
