Fuji: A Opera returns with an exhibition of Fuji-themed digital artworks.

The digital artworks have been produced by the 24-year-old Nigerian digital artist- Bidemi Tata. This exhibition is titled ORIJINALFUJIISART. The public display of these digital artworks would take two folds: a gallery exhibition and outdoor installations at three high traffic areas in partnership with the Lagos State Government and the Lagos State Parks and Gardens Agency (LASPARK)

The outdoor installations would show 10 digital artworks at each of the high-traffic areas selected. We believe this initiative further promotes the mandate of LASPARK, an agency responsible for beautifying the environment through landscaping and planting of trees as well as promoting recreation and leisure by creating safe, outdoor public spaces in Lagos. We find this in tandem with our vision as well. We are reimagining the possibilities of our environment through art and conserving the Fuji music sub-culture. 

By providing digital artworks to populate the serene environment created by the Lagos State Parks and Gardens Agency (LASPARK), Fuji: A Opera joins in the drive to promote the city of Lagos as a cultural destination with environmentally friendly sites and with visual entertainment that describes the energy of the city.

“Riding on the success of the maiden edition, where we introduced the public to the history and the founding fathers of Fuji music, we are plunging the Fuji music genre into the future; this year, with digital illustrations”, says Tosin Ashafa, Executive Producer of Fuji: A Opera. “The Fuji music genre is a self-evolving cultural machine; however, a digital art exhibition of international quality would give the Fuji music genre its place as a relevant force of culture”.

The gallery exhibition holds at Untitled, Maitama Sule- Ikoyi, Lagos from the 2nd-5th of December 2021 (1pm-5pm). An invitation only VIP preview is scheduled for the 5th of December 2021 (6pm-10pm)
