The Battle for Abidjan by Aboudia Abdoulaye @ Jack Bell Gallery
They say art depicts life and Aboudia Abdoulaye Diarrassouba, an Ivorian artist brings the disputed Ivorian presidential election of 2010, to the fore in a series of painting currently showing at the Jack Bell Gallery, London. Diarrassouba is known for his large-scale, heavily layered, brutally energetic paintings that combine an innocence and spontaneity with the portrayal of a dark interior world.
I believe the above description is exciting enough to pique your curiosity. If not, see the images below and then go check it out at the gallery. You will be glad you did 🙂
The exhibition runs until 16 February, 2013
