Rele gallery is delighted to present the exhibition “Visitors”, a solo show by young Nigerian artist Austin Uzor, who specializes in drawing.
Uzor exclusively works with a ballpoint pen, using human faces to explore various subjects that trouble the society, from war and conflict to materialism.
According to Rele, for every artist, from Picasso to Ehikhamenor, this is how it all started. A crayon, a pencil, a ballpoint pen, an exercise book, a dedicated jotter, a sketch pad and plenty ideas, form, shapes, shades, and pattern in between.
Through this exhibition, the gallery hopes to spark a renewed interest in this medium of art.
Exhibition opening Date : Sunday, July 3rd, 2016
