Dennis Osadebe - Modern Magic
KÖNIG LONDON is pleased to present MODERN MAGIC, Dennis Osadebe’s first exhibition with KÖNIG GALERIE, comprised of ten new paintings, all acrylic and archival ink on canvas. With the starting point of black magic and its deep history as a thematic framing, the works present themselves like a theatre filled with visual challenges and rich experimentation.
Osadebe’s radical approach to self-portraiture manifests his philosophical basis for contemporary Nigerian art, fusing Western techniques and indigenous traditions to construct a new paradigm for the evolution of art. According to the artist, “It is setting the clock back to expect that the art form of Africa today must resemble that of yesterday otherwise the former will not reflect the African image.”
