Sense of Self

3 November 2021 - 16 January 2022

Sense of Self is a collection of painting’s by Olawunmi Banjo with the exploration of three central themes: accepting self, letting go of the past, and embracing present moments . It is her ode to our life-long journey towards self-realisation and actualisation, “clarity coming by aligning with the core of  our inner being”.

 

Banjo is a self-taught visual artist with a degree in Creative Entrepreneurship from the Pan-Atlantic University in Lagos, Nigeria. Her hyper-realism style was inspired by exploring surrealistic landscapes which question constructs around physical reality . Banjo paints figures woven together by electrical wires, in acrobatic dance poses, leaping through time and space, propelled by a colorful surge of  electric energy.
