Wonders Shall Never End

Opening: 15 July 2022 - 14 August 2022

The Melrose Gallery takes pleasure in announcing the upcoming launch of Edozie Anedu’s latest solo titled ‘Wonders Shall Never End’. The exhibition features a series of paintings created in 2022 and follows on from his well-received show with Unit London in 2021.
 
Anedu is a self-taught artist based in Benin City in Nigeria. He works with mixed media to create stylised imagery that references graffiti and mural art traditions. Anedu’s practice centres around popular culture, music, fashion and the human experience. He applies his paint in thick impasto, and his figures often have a cartoon like quality, almost childlike and naïve in nature. This style, imbued with a wonderful sense of humour, is presented in juxtaposition to his powerful and important messaging which is often highlighted in the form of text applied to the canvas.
 
In ‘Wonders shall never End!’ Anedu surveys our society’s cultural landscape and the abundance of art therein. Where does it come from, and why does it never run out?  He describes this body of work as an adventure, a journey that explores what makes us art.
