Collectors of his works spread across Africa, Europe, Australia, America and Asia. A musician, actor, model and entrepreneur, Bobby Onafuye Abolade, said he sees arts as an essential tool for expression.
He said that the Arts of Heart exhibition “interprets where l came from and how original I am being Black. He urged every African that has a niche for the art industry to do more by patronising the African arts wears and healthy cultures, stressing that Africa is blessed with a lot of human and material resources that are not well harnessed.
Another artist, Kafayat Quadri, said: “We all as art enthusiasts, art lovers and collectors had wonderful experience and appreciated Sylvester Aguddah’s creative handiwork. We are grateful for his platform; for empowering young and talented artistes to be relevant and be at par with our foreign counterparts.”
