“On the other hand, Nwaegbe’s work is characterised by its decorative qualities and colour applied lavishly almost straight out of the tube and in broad flat strokes. However, his debtto Fauvism and the Abstract Expressionist movement is evident. Vaguely reminiscent of Raoul Dufy, 22 paintings betray a radical departure from an earlier strongly figurative style exemplified in his first solo ‘Tainted Visions’, staged just over a decade ago. This divergence may not be understood as a linear progression of styles but as a psychologically expressive response to the prevailing socio-economic and political disruptions.”

– Oliver Enwonwu, Director, Omenka Gallery, Chairman, Society of Nigerian Artists

Installation ongoing. Opening tomorrow 12.pm
