Primary school students from The German school, Lagos came around during the exhibition. They asked questions about my practice, influence base etc and with assistance from their teachers, we made an art workshop happen! :-)

About the exhibition

 

26 /365: An exhibition of illustrated letters. 26/365 is an exhibition of illustrated letters inspired by the bold, edgy graffiti aesthetic, character design, the fine black line and expressive text present in Comic Books.

Illustrated Letters offers a unique blend of pop-cultural elements made possible through my exploration of the themes of freshness and reinvention via the breaking down and expressive reconstruction of homogeneous established forms, in this case the ubiquitous letters.

Created using a combination of traditional and digital media, the Illustrated letters present letters in their secondary state, a state where they exist as images not just as elements that make words and sentences possible.

The 26 letters are part of my ongoing daily drawing project Draw365 and they also represent my deep interest in challenging the widely held view that Graphic Design is a discipline that exists solely for the passing of commercial messages.
