Art lovers will today converge on the Adeline Galler, Ikoyi, Lagos, to witness expressionist paintings of Nostalgia artists such as Idowu Sonaya, Desmond Dubre, Nobert Okpu, Sylvester Aigbogun, Porter Ajayi, Lekii Adebesin, Oduone Patrick, Victor Abia Assam, Savage Olusegun Gabriel, Taiwo George-Taylor and Babatunde Bashiru.

The creative and visual talents noticed among the selection of these Nigerian artists is no doubt an indication that they have responded to the dynamics of change and continuity within the framework of indigenous art and culture.

These exhibits depict signature subjects encompassing natural landscapes, society, spirituality and culture on various media. Most of their works render an open-ended experience. Each piece celebrates true African traditions with contemporary inclusions.

Following the completion of studies at the Yaba College of Technology, Lagos, between 1997 and 1999, a group of 64 talented artists converged toward promoting professional collaborations in the art industry.

The very first of such collaborations birthed the NOSTALGIA exhibition.

As the exhibiting artists have aptly titled the exhibition ‘Nostalgia’, they intend to go down memory lane and in doing so they have anchored the expedition on an unbreakable chain, collectively journeying into their source and what will emerge is the superb work that will be showcased through the gallery.

The Adeline Gallery recognises all the exhibiting artists and encourages them to keep the flame of camaraderie alive, lead the industry in an inspirational way and put Nigerian Art in its rightful position of positive placement.
