Classic-Contemporary artist, Mr. Tunji Lana will from Friday April 10 to 17, 2015 unvei to the world a refreshingly new form of art called LANABLACK, through an open one week exhibition at Terra Kulture, Lagos.

The launch/unveiling of the exhibition, which will kick off on Friday April 10 will continue through 17th Lagos from 9.30am – 7.00pm daily.

An extraordinary photography exhibition, which showcases the ability of one man to reach into the farthest recesses of his mind and provoke audiences to believe that man can recreate anything in any way that he so desires.

According to Terra Kulture’s veteran Curator Ms. Aderonke Akinyele, “LANABLACK is a “style” of photography art which speaks to the viewer to see the world in a different way. It is a very imaginative and expressive creative form of photography, which demands the audience to see a new perspective of what ordinarily is and stretches the imaginative power of the human mind.

Mr. Tunji Lana, the originator of LANABLACK noted that the concept of art also has a message for mankind, that it is designed to challenge, provoke and excite people. He clearly stated that it is a mind-set that is not unbending but a re-creation that makes “everything international” where every object has an opportunity to become more and every subject has the opportunity to see what could be more.

In a passionate definition, Lana explained LANABLACK to be a visual interpretation of a mind-set that he is urging the world to be magnetized by, to appreciate and to adopt. Technically, he elaborated that LANABLACK captures the expressive nature of light and shade. It springs forth tones and textures, drama over subtlety and subtlety over drama, and ultimately taking the viewer through a new experience.

This concept introduced by Tunji Lana in 2014 is being formally launched this year through a one-week double location exhibition.
