ABOUT O’DA ART GALLERY

Established in 2021, O’DA Art Gallery has a dual focus on championing mid-career and established contemporary artists from Africa and its diaspora.

Bridging the gap between local and international audiences, our gallery is committed to showcasing artists who explore a wide range of themes such as, identity, technology, political commentary, social consciousness and environmental change. With “beauty” at the epicentre of our gallery vision, we strive to present timeless displays by fusing art and interior design to create an immersive environment for our audiences. With a continuous programme of sublime exhibitions, installations and performances, the gallery aims to foster global partnerships, expand a gallery residency programme and welcome art professionals to contemporary West African art practices.
