The Re-Agents | Amplified

26th March - 15th April, 2023


ODA Art is pleased to present “The Re-Agents: Amplified”, a series of works on paper by visual artist Ayoola Gbolahan-marking his first solo exhibition at the gallery–Opening 26th March, 2023.

In this new body of work, Gbolahan captures the essence of a new cultural understanding of what it is to be Nigerian, & African by extension. Using bold colours, alternate shapes and expressive lines in his compositions, the figures are a visual manifestation of an emboldened generation whose creativity, innovation and exposure have redefined different facets of African Culture.

Ayoola’s awareness and concern about socio-political tensions, economic crises and increasing levels of migration, underpin this new body of work, suggesting that we must connect with the history of our past in order to inform and take ownership of the power of African culture & narrative.
