MEET AYOBOLA KEKERE-EKUN, THE NIGERIAN ARTIST WHO USES STRIPS OF PAPER AND GLUE TO CREATE INCREDIBLE WORKS OF ART.
24-year-old Ayobola Kekere-Ekun is a Lagos-based contemporary visual artist who studied graphic design at the University of Lagos and graduated with a B.A. in visual arts. Her work explores issues related to mythology, gender, constructs of power and the human condition. Her art form involves the use of strips of coloured paper that are rolled, shaped, and glued together to create stunning designs. So, if you were ever one of those kids that just tore up papers with scissors for the fun it, shame on you and me of course.
This story has made me realize that there is so much ingenuity in arts and culture and that a whole lot can be created from something unbelievable.
