1st June to 3rd July 2019
Banana Hill Art Gallery
Beyond Borders

Ademola Adeshina hails from Osun State in western Nigeria. He studied general art in The Polythecnic, Ibadan, (1989 - 1991) and was later trained as a textile designer at Yaba College of Technology, Lagos (1993 - 1995).
He is a self thought painter. He became a full time studio artist in 1999. Beholding his diverse styles of painting, one could deduce that Adeshina's mind is full of unending ideas, and his unquenchable desire to explore these ideas makes him delve into painting in different styles.
He has been experimenting on how to strike a balance between abstraction and other forms of art, which over the years has produced the harvest of a particular style of painting that is now identified as being unique to him.
He adopted pointillism, simplification and dematerializaion of human forms, suffused with decorative patterns and symbols drawn across the global space.
His work brims and bristles with reach and vibrant pastel-like palette with a unique allure that arrests the attention and invokes introspection.
He has several group exhibitions to his credit and his works are widely collected by private individuals and public organizations both home and abroad.

30th May to 17th June 2019
Village Market – Exhibition Hall
Exhibition: Then and Now by Clavers Odhiambo, Richard Kuria, Alan Githuka & Wanyu Brush

There was a time the world sort African art for among its other qualities, seemingly unspoilt naivety. Ngecha it could be argued, is the birthplace of contemporary art in the country. Throw a stone in Ngecha, and it will most likely hit an artist! Wanyu Brush is one of the fathers of Ngecha, art wise. This exhibition celebrates him with one of his earliest and notably celebrated and collected protégés, Alan Githuka. Githuka’s crowds of heads, Market scenes and his calming landscape, colourful decongested happy slum-scapes, are a part of any worthy contemporary visual Kenyan art collection.
Mirroring this seasoned maestros are the unhinged young, cool, lit 2 contemporaries; Clavers Odhiambo and Richard Kuria. Through their art, we can note how contemporary art in Kenya has spun, literally on its head, and for the better, no doubt. The young Odhiambo is a master of detail. Kuria is literary unconstrained by medium; using broken and laser cut LP Vinyl records to create masterpieces of juxtaposition. Their subjects are widely multi-faceted. ‘Pop’ cannot fully describe their work.
These two very different schools of thought and creation in the Kenyan art trend, is just a snippet of how the landscape was, is and is continually morphing and forming. Growing.

Experience an icon, Wanyu Brush. Dive into the diverse worlds of Alan Githuka. Enjoy the young.
Then & Now, 2019. By the Little Gallery. At the Village Market. Nairobi.
