OOA Gallery presents ‘Orange isn’t Blue’ by Oliver Okolo, from 25 March to 16 April 2023.
Oliver was born in Nigeria, in 1992. Intrigued by the mysteries of the human figure as a unique work of nature, he uses the human figure to create artworks that talk about his opinions and views about the things he feels is neglected or not spoken about in his society.
Oliver works in many artistic mediums but has a preference for charcoal medium because of its versatility and the textures it creates. He uses simple shading techniques like crosshatching to create realistic drawings full of textures. He devotes much time in his studio to the study of his artistic technique and searches for continuous improvement of his expressive capabilities.
OOA Gallery is a contemporary African art gallery based in Stiges, Barcelona, Spain.
