Art by JOHN MADU, on display in his ongoing exhibition Identity Tones. . . John Madu is a multi-disciplinary artist, whose paintings and art pieces overlap between art and design. Through personal iconographic symbols with allegorical metaphors, texture, indigenous patterns and colours, his paintings instigate the development of new modes of critical practice. His most recent subject matter dwells along the lines of the effect of globalization and the African identity. This, he relays through portraiture, figurative symbolism, mixed media, and collage. “The spread of popular culture via the internet and social media has created an increase in cross cultural contacts which is a good thing, but original cultural practices can be lost in the process such as with traditional music, and a decrease in the uniqueness of once isolated communities." . . . . . . . . . . . . #Art #JohnMadu @johnmadu_art #Painting #Portraiture #Iconography #Symbolism #Identity #PopularCulture #NigerianArtist #Nigeria #Africa #AfricanArt #AfricanArtist #ContemporaryArt #ContemporaryArtist #ContemporaryAfricanArt #ArtDaily #DailyArt #ArtOnInstagram #Like4Like #InstaPost #ArtLovers #Kunst #AfrikanIscheKunst #Lasmara

The hardest thing I have ever done is to let go of a painful past. I cannot explain how freeing it is to live without negative thoughts and emotions. Every new day becomes exciting and very activity is something to look forward to. And this space has become a place I run to every time I get up, because I no longer paint with tears of sadness streaming down my cheeks. In this space, I now create joy. Welcome to my space. #khalaijimase #kulolagallery #contemporaryart
