Lagos went agog on Sunday 1st April 2018, when Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, Ojaja II, declared open, the spring edition of THE CONTENT art exhibition “The Water Colour Masters”. This is the third in the series of Exhibition put together by the foremost one-stop luxury store “Adam and Eve”. of Mrs. Modupe Ogunlesi. The opening ceremony of the one-month long Spring Edition tagged “Water Colour Masters” lived beyond expectations as artists, journalists, art enthusiasts and more graced the occasion as the artists display thought and emotion provoking creative works cutting across different design spheres, all from water colour shades. These various works complement the walls across the different sections of the luxury store “Adam and Eve”.
Ooni himself became an artist, curator, and advocate as he led the way through the long chains of works from the eight grand masters of the trade and reeled support for art as potent and enduring custodian of culture. In his words “in art, culture and traditions are protected, hence it is our collective responsibilities to keep culture and tradition alive through art”.
The works on display are from Tayo Adenaike, Olu Ajayi, Ini Brown, Sam Ovraiti, Lekan Onabanjo, Tunde Soyinka, Kehinde Sanwo and Victor Obasuyi; gracing the walls of the luxury store of Mrs. Modupe Ogunlesi, a leading Nigeria luxury homeware and art enthusiast herself.
