Open House Lagos 2018 Tour: Home And Studio Of Artist Rom Isichei
“Love feels not with the eyes, but with the mind.”
This Shakespearean quote tattooed on the arm of famous Brtish fashion designer Alexander McQueen, is one of the many inspirations for an artwork by Rom Isichei, a lover of Modernist architecture and one of Nigeria’s more famous artists.
On Saturday, the 28th of April, Open House Lagos gave individuals a chance to explore the spectacular home and studio of Isichei, which was designed by architect Sola Adesina.
Located in Ilupeju, Lagos, the building houses a home in front and a two-level studio which can be approached from a side street. The large living area doubles as a gallery with large canvasses hanging on the walls. The studio also accommodates finished and unfinished works by the artist himself.
