Sapele Neon Boy: Joshua Uvieghara:
Joshua Uvieghara approaches painting with a visionary perspective that revolves around the interplay of colour and the materiality of paint. His creative process involves extracting structures from personal anecdotes and childhood recollections, allowing subjects to emerge organically. Uvieghara's fascination lies in the visual potential of painting, constructing works that invoke perceptions of time and duration akin to cinematic concepts.
