2022-11-11 | Fellow Abdulrazaq Awofeso joins Ed Cross London

safda adf afs We congratulate Thami Mnyele Foundation fellow Abdulrazaq Awofeso for joining Ed Cross.

Ed Cross will represent the UK-based Nigerian artist Abdulrazaq Awofeso (b. 1978, Lagos, Nigeria) and present a solo exhibition of new work by Awofeso at 19 Garrett Street, London, in spring 2023.

Widely known for his use of ‘forgotten materials’, Awofeso dismantles structures such as pallet boxes before using the timber to represent human figures. His installations and sculptures tell stories about different environments and the communities that live in them. Recently relocating from Lagos to Birmingham, Awofeso’s 2022 exhibition Out of Frame at Ikon Gallery, Birmingham, was loaded with connotations of human migration, as well as referring to the artist’s own frequent journeys through African and Europe.

More information on the gallery website.
