Victor Ehikhamenor's Art

Victor Ehikhamenor

On Sunday, Victor Ehikhamenor opened his first solo exhibition (since his return last year after a 15 year sojourn in the US) Mirrors and Mirages at the Terra Kulture, Victoria Island. It is a collection of works done in acrylic on canvas, oil on canvas, found art, paint, ink and pen. One of the works that moved me the most is that titled Power play- I better pass my neighbour where he uses the installation of a small power generating set to defamiliarise the serious power shortage that afflicts the Nigerian society.

Please if you get a chance post more on street pics. African cities are always so colourful and intersting..... I am going to visit this blog as often as possible. It really is nice to see a daily photo from Nigeria...
