Charcoal Art in 2011

I was sent information about an artist in Abuja called Laolu Senbanjo. He does his pieces mainly in charcoal and incorporates all sorts of (particularly Yoruba) mythology, ancient art forms and shapes. Bankole Oluwole of Afrosays is organizing a pro-bono promotion for Laolu's work, which is great since Laolu's work  is rather under acknowledged.

I am fascinated by Laolu's art.

I'll allow his work speak for itself because I cannot do it enough justice. Here are a few of his pieces:





Find out more about him and his work at his website http://www.laolusenbanjo.com/

His gallery is located at:


17 Aba Close, off Lokoja Street
Area 8, Garki,
Abuja, FCT.
Nigeria.
(+234 8060500501)

All pieces are copyrighted to Laolu Senbanjo.
