The Black Image Company Presents: ArtsAdvocate
May 24, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
The Black Image Company (co-founded by Kimberley Oseni) is a new enterprise aiming to inject more diversity into the arts and have created a platform to showcase young, up & coming and diverse talent, from illustration to poetry.
Their debut event is a collaboration with Lawrence Amajuoyi (my baby cousin – whoop whoop) aka @ArtsAdvocateUK and a performance from the poet: DamilolaOh. This event is a visual art showcase presented by him based on his first comic book named ‘Patron‘; which is a black-focused anti-superhero story.
I am super proud and excited about this debut collection by Lawrence and can remember how he has always loved drawing and illustrating and this goes to show that sometimes you have to let your children carry on with their gifting once displayed from a young age and his parents did just that (as long as it didn’t interfere with his education – we are Nigerians after all and failure is not an option in our family). So I’m proud of you Lawrence and we can wait to celebrate your masterpiece collection on Friday.
The Black Image Company Presents: ArtsAdvocate is a week-long exhibition where guests can not only view but also purchase @ArtsAdvocate work. It will be kicked off with a ticketed preview event, where guests will be entertained with multiple performances from including poet Lola Oh. This will be his first UK solo exhibition, where a variety of his work and styles will be displayed, where the artists himself will be present to talk about his work, vision and inspiration behind the pieces.
