Small is Beautiful - [Miniature Art Fair]

arc Gallery is delighted to be holding an art fair of highly desirable small scale original works by contemporary artists, Ndidi Dike, Duke Asidere, George Edozie, Okezie Okafor, Ayoola Gbolahan and Babalola Lawson.

With the eyes of the art world steadily focused on contemporary Nigerian art; on the web and in physical gallery spaces, compounded by energetic trading in international auction houses, one could be misled into thinking that, the contemporary Nigerian art market is reaching saturation point. Not so. There is even more reason for the art lover to be alert, to remain parallel with developments and the creative pace. Truly talented, exciting artists at all stages of practice and emergence will continue to be at the heart of this visual focus. None so other than, Dike, Asidere, Edozie, Okafor, Gbolahan and Lawson - some of Nigeria’s leading and emerging artists today. The sextet has produced a collection of their respective art forms in miniature scale, presenting opportunities for viewers to acquire artwork at an accessible cost.

These six artists are versed in their craft and creative influences – highlights on the Nigerian cultural geography. Yet their art is a testament of individual progression and diversity.

The world is compressed or made smaller with the works’ accessibility, as the paintings themselves. Art lovers who have not been initiated as earnest collectors, or made the pilgrimage to witness some of these artists at work, can get to view a range of beautiful, desirable paintings to transfer from our wall to yours.

This is a rare and exciting opportunity; to discover new artists, acquire original works of art, while being confident in securing sound investments of original, enjoyable works. ‘Small is Beautiful’- [Miniature Art Fair] at the arc Gallery opens to the public on Saturday 24th September 2011 until Friday 7th October 2011
