Lovers of art are looking forward to the debut solo art exhibition of a Nigerian creator of unrefined storytelling, Ms Orry Shenjobi, titled The Beauty Within the Struggle.
For seven days, starting from Friday, December 18 to Thursday, December 24, 2020, Ms Shenjobi will showcase her realistic designs created with fresh and unrefined technique.
“I hope to explore the depths of individualistic identity – the connections between society and self, whilst using prevalent social issues as a backdrop.
“From the everyday lives of the unheard to the shared struggles of a collective, I capture these moments. By exploring the myriad of hopes, dreams, and fears of said individuals, I emphasize a sense of unity in uniqueness amongst these narratives. And this concept of unified individuality is made apparent in my work,” she said.
At the exhibition, participants will have the opportunity to see the vast collection of strikingly demonstrative media pieces of Shenjobi, which comprises an integration of painting and photography.
The unrefined pieces of art of the notable storyteller are inspirational, with crisp visuals and realistically created using mixed materials to encapsulate the depths of individualistic identity.
The creatively curated collection of art pieces by the exhibitor tells the beautiful story of Nigerians and their amazing resilience in the face of unconventional situations.
While speaking on her creative rendition, Shenjobi said, “Through the calculated use of materials and seamless weaving of media, I challenge my audience to question their preconceived notions. Thus, provoking many to embark on personal discovery journey through unexplored territories. It is my way of inviting my audience to be co-creators with me and witnesses the multidimensionality of life.”
