GBENGA OFFO SUMMER 2018 SALON EXHIBITION - COLLECTOR'S PREVIEW OFFER

ABOUT THE ARTIST, GBENGA OFFO

Gbenga Offo trained at Yaba College of Technology as a Graphic Designer and received the best art student award at graduation in 1984. He spent more than a decade in the advertising industry before resigning from advertising to become a full time studio artist. Gbenga Offo wears many art tags - painter, sculptor, illustrator, once describing himself as not having “enough time to experiment”. A true liberal artist for the ages, his paintings are expressionist masterpieces inspired by the craftsmanship of traditional West African art. His choice of figurative art in an environment increasingly contending with debates around conceptual art and installation methods is a testament to his free will.

His style shows an affinity for primary colours and a prominence of exaggerated figures with pronounced eyes and chins which he creates with his signature figurative-line geometry. However his experimental spirit can not be ignored and this comes to bear in the Offo’s new abstract, fluid and muted paintings which are highly sought after by collectors in Nigeria and all over the world.
