Transmissions Part 2Wiz Kudowor, 'Panels of thought' (2011)
Wisdom 'Wiz' Kudowor and Ablade Glover are two of Africa's most revered and celebrated artists thanks to their complex and experimental styles. Their newest work is now being exhibited by Barcelona's Tasneem Gallery.
Part 1 of the Transmissions series was a solo exhibition by Pape Seydi Samba in 2010 which explored the artistic ideas of the region; ideas which this exhibition continues to explore, from the deep cultural and artistic aesthetic born in the region of Africa where the artists were formed. Both artists live and work in Accra, Ghana's capital city, and their works feature a subtlety and depth, as well as an innovative use of colour and technique, creating a universal appeal to their pieces.
Kudowor's work mixes the present with African cultural heritage to create innovative and challenging works. Glover's work takes its form as a continuous experiment in depicting how the city and its landscape exudes itself in different moments.
The exhibition begins November 15th and continues until December 31st. Full information can be found here.
