  • If Walls Could Speak
  • Patrick Akpojotor

  • September 22 - November 8, 2019

  • The Wheatbaker


  • Akpojotor’s work captures the heart of traditional, colonial, and contemporary architecture scattered across the Lagos cityscape. He creates anthropomorphic buildings with distinct personalities and attitudes, exploring how the built environment influences our sense of identity. His brightly colored canvases and detailed pencil sketches portray surreal staircases, windows, and the walls of imagined spaces which personify emotionally complex characters.

     

    Akpjotor studied fine art at the Auchi Federal Polytechnic, and graphic design at the Lagos State Polytechnic, Ikorodu. He was mentored by master artist Prof Bruce Onobrakpeya, working with him as a studio assistant and later as a facilitator at the bi-annual Harmattan Workshops. Akpjotor has received numerous awards including the first ArtXLagos Prize for emerging artists in 2016.

     

    This is Akpojotor’s first solo exhibition
