I Like History, but I love Fiction

31 January 2020 - 13 March 2020

Dennis Osadebe (born in 1991) is a Nigerian mixed-media artist best known for his contemporary, vibrant post-pop style. Osadebe’s style is a unique blend of digital processes, which he uses to create canvasses that are subsequently layered with acrylic paint. With his characteristic use of flattened planes and bold colour, the artist creates what he refers to as a “neo” visual style, one that is “modern, bright, expressive and provocative”.
 
This exhibition draws a lot of inspiration from art history and questions its authenticity. It does this by playfully posing the question, is art history accurate if parts of it have been neglected and purposefully removed?
