Seeing in Black and White

This summer in Chuck Gallery the attention of African art enthusiasts will turn to the beautiful works of Nigerian artist, Damola Adepoju, featuring his signature style which for more than a decade has been widely appreciated for the direct contrast of black and white. The result is of vintage quality exploring both architectural mnemonics and milieus common in Lagos metropolis, including unique studies of half nude female forms and a complementary range of exciting subjects outside the black and white oeuvre. 

Chuck Gallery is proud to present Seeing in Black and White, a solo exhibition spotlighting breath-taking paintings with remarkable perspectives by Adepoju. The collection is a kaleidoscopic narrative that uncovers the soul of a city in transition, the triumph of its population in constant motion, the norm of vehicular procession and the squalid recesses of ordinary dwellings.
