HIGHWAY PREACHERS – A SOLO EXHIBITION BY DISEYE TANTUA- AN EXHIBITION OF PAINTINGS
April 9, 2022
Alexis Galleries is glad to present a solo exhibition of recent works by the mixed media and renowned painter, Diseye Tantua. Entitled ‘Highway Preachers’, this exhibition builds on the artist’s trajectory of directing people’s attention and focus to writings and inscriptions on buses, taxis and trucks.
Usually, Diseye’s works encompasses line, colour and expressive texts. His drawings which are inspired by slogans, proverbs, and texts on buses, trucks, and lorries are results of his love for slogans which started at a very young age in Ghana when he would pass time at an artist kiosk where all kinds of graphic works were done.
In This exhibition we are partnering with Warif. (https://warifng.org/).
This exhibition present his recent works as documentation of quotes, slogans, parables, phrases, events, and experiences that are found on the streets of Nigeria and Ghana. Hence the title, HIGHWAY PREACHERS. Enjoy the exhibition.
