Morgan Otagburuagu - In Bloom

Wed-Sat: 12-6pm

Doyle Wham is excited to present In Bloom, Morgan Otagburuagu's first solo exhibition worldwide.

Otagburuagu (b. 1997, Abia State, Nigeria) is a self-taught photographer who has made major waves in the fashion and art industries with his unique style of portraiture. In this exhibition, a new series, In Bloom, receives its global debut. These works are of monumental significance to the artist, as they represent a move towards rebirth and re-emergence after a personal tragedy - the loss of both parents in 2021 - which led to a two year hiatus in Otagburuagu's creative journey.

In this body of work, the artist explores the cyclical nature of life and death, and how nature reflects and embodies that process. Flowers are important markers that people associate with both celebrations and mourning, and therefore play a dual role in this series: respect for the past, and hope for the future.
