Today, leading luxury fragrance, skincare, cosmetics and lifestyle company, Montaigne Place will be unveiling the maiden edition of its art development project tagged the ‘Montaigne Place Urban Art Series’.
Montaigne Place Urban Art Series was conceived as a platform to bring together exciting modern and contemporary works of Nigerian artists for public viewing by commissioning and installing artworks in a variety of media.
This Urban Art Series is scheduled to take place at the Montaigne Place store at The Palms Shopping Mall, Lekki, Lagos on 31st May 2018 and promises to be an exciting experience for curators, collectors, enthusiasts and lovers of art where an 8ft by 11ft oil painting has been installed on the side windows overlooking the common areas.
Art lovers will get to see the work of the first artist commissioned to kick off the series. The 42-years-old professional oil pastel and acrylic painter discovered his distinct style and fondness for painting deeply personal subject matters after graduating from the university with a degree in Mass Communication.
He was self-trained and began to exhibit his works steadily, and his stylized figurative compositions, and landscape subjects drew attention from established artists, art collectors, and art galleries around the world, which immediately propelled him to national recognition as a leading contemporary master painter, while his career grew and moved him into the celebrated realm of solo exhibitions in Lagos, Nigeria, and in Lisbon, Portugal.
Most of his works have found its greatest expression when addressing the concept of Passion; Love, Music, Family and everyday social interactions.
