THE ARTIST'S STORY: POLLY ALAKIJA *
Polly Alakija is a British muralist, artist and children's book author. Born in Britain, she moved to Nigeria on getting married to her Nigerian husband Ade Alakija and for many years lived in ibadan, Oyo State.
Between 2005 and 2011 she was based in South Africa. She now works from her studio in Lagos, and most of her works focus on Nigerian themed concepts. *
In October 2013, she had her first major public exhibition titled Here and There. Some of her displayed works included canvas works inspired by dance, painted objects used by Nigerians such as canoes and portraits with a common theme of mother and child images that were inspired by her Sojourn in urban and rural Nigeria. *
Born in Malvern, Worcestershire in 1966, she studied at Oxford Polytechnic.
Polly is particularly interested in the human form and the portrayal thereof. Her architectonic figures languish within their iconic environment in timeless serenity. Her canvas are inhabited by gentle giants of nature, whose energy is conserved in a permanent lethargy, where rich color contrasts, brush work, form and texture dominate. @pollyalajika you're an inspiration to us. 💞
