Our love for Nigerian artist Modupeola Fadugba (@modupeola.fadugba) is too real!
This piece is called ‘Senegalese Boys’. Modupeola will be one of more than 60 artists exhibiting at #ARTXLagos (@artxlagos) this year.
Modupeola uses her subjects in the ‘Tagged’ series to depict how artists constantly seek external validation as symbolized by the red dot. Speaking on intersectional themes in this body of work she says, “an artist’s creation is an extension of themselves…I explore the idea of visibility, exclusivity, ownership and selling artwork as competing interests.”
ART X Lagos takes place at The Civic Centre in Victoria Island from 3rd-5th November. A selection of Modupeola’s works will be showcased at the SMO Gallery (@smocontemporaryart) booth. Register at www.artxlagos.com.
