The exhibition is made up of exceptional pieces which reflect over 50 years of Professor Bruce Onobrakpeya outstanding career. There are serigraphs from his famous “Sunshine period” of the 1960s-1970s, and paintings and etchings that feature images from his “Dance to Enchanting Songs” series. There are also small pendants the size of a mobile phone, that reflect images and symbols drawn from his “Esirogbo” and “migratory media” techniques. Of course there are numerous large and medium sized metal foil relief and deep etchings and plastocasts which he is famous for, and which draw deeply on the culture and language of Nigeria and his response to years of socio-political change.
