Agoreyo Oke: Collage Paintings
While experimenting with different mediums and improving his technique, Agoreyo Oke has developed a flair for paper collage paintings. With the exception of his majestic untitled collage depicting the mask of warrior Queen Idia of the Benin Kingdom, his works use paintings as a base for these incredibly detailed, colorful paper mosaics. Through the vibrant characters and textured settings in each piece, we are introduced to the artist’s rich culture and surroundings.
Born in Nigeria in the late 80s, Agoreyo Oke is currently a student of the University of Benin, Department of Fine and Applied Arts, majoring in painting. He has participated in a lot of exhibitions including “Life in My City Art Festival”, Enugu 2012 and 2013, and also the Spanish Embassy exhibition 2013 within Nigeria. His collages can be found in numerous offices, homes, private and public collections.
