Art Exhibition: Contempo (I)…Artistic Journeys North

Art Exhibition: Contempo (I)...Artistic Journeys North

CONTEMPO (I) is an amazing art exhibition showing a great selection of contemporary paintings and works by four different but complementary artists, born in Africa and South East Asia. With styles which mixes aspects of impressionism, realism, semi abstract, and indo-surrealist inflections, Contempo 1 is about great artistic journeys made from South of the World (as it used to be called) to the North h, metaphysically and artistically.

Artistically, these artists inherit the two worlds they find themselves in and make use of these in terms of techniques and subject matter. Three out of the 4 artists now live in the UK.

“Come and savour Madhumati’s continued brilliance – with a number of new stunning works (see why she triumphed at her recent show at the Jehangir Gallery in Mumbai); witness the emergence of Bruce Chidovori as an artist to be watched; enjoy Arjun’s amazing screens and somewhat surrealist paintings; and be enchanted with the goofy and whimsical playfulness of Agorsor’s paintings” says the curator Kwame Akuffo of AFRIKart Gallery.

Kwame is really excited about this exhibition which brings together great works of art by four talented artists originating from far-flung places, celebrating the converging contemporary landscapes they live in now.

Kwame says this exhibition on for one week only and you will kick yourself to miss it. There are works by established artists such as Madhumati and Agorsor, the re- emergence of Arjun kashyap, and a great surprise in store from the maiden exhibition from Bruce Chidovori. The works are sometimes explorative, yet delivered with great skill and maturity and it is resplendent with vitality and surprises.
