Oresegun Olumide

Last month I criticized Tiwani Contemporary, a new African art gallery in London, and suggested I could find much better African artists elsewhere (title link). Above is a perfect example: Hair Care by award-winning artist Oresegun Olumide, who works in Lagos, Nigeria. An exhibition of his art at Tiwani Contemporary would be well worth visiting. His scenes of Nigerian village life are exquisite. Below is another of his oil paintings: Secret. The expression on the face of the girl on the left says it all. Unfortunately Oresegun has no website.
