Omenka Gallery together with Alliance Francaise presents an exhibition, “Time To Meet” on the 12th March 2016 in celebration of the 2016 Francophone week.

The exhibition features recent works by Cameroonian artist Joel Mpah Dooh which will be his first solo exhibition in Nigeria. He will present works on aluminium arising from the depth of introspection into the ways his fellow humans act in the world. Joel projects these thoughts in metaphors relying on a medium, means and style. He fuses his love for graffiti and child-like art and his style of suffusion of lines.

Duration:  12th March  – 3rd of April 2016.

Venue: 24, Ikoyi (Modupe Alakija) Crescent, Ikoyi, Lagos| Nigeria
