Transcending Boundaries 2015

Aabru Art’s Transcending Boundaries 2015

The leading platform for modern and contemporary West African art

22 April –23 April 2015

Free admission

Representing artists from the Guild of Professional fine artists of Nigeria.

Aabru Art’s Transcending Boundaries 2015 is back for its third edition, bringing you never-before-seen paintings and sculptures by 35 Nigerian artists.

Transcending Boundaries 2015 is the largest selling Modern and Contemporary West African show in London and a venue for people to admire and buy varied paintings and sculptures – mixed media, oil on canvas, wood, metal – ranging from £2,000 to £15,000.

The show begins with a two-day programme at Asia House from 22 – 23 April.

It is the largest selling Modern and Contemporary West African Art show in London and a venue for people to admire and buy pieces by well-known masters in their region and internationally emerging artists of great quality. After the opening at Asia House, it continues with a three-week exhibition and events programme at Lacey Contemporary Gallery, an exciting new Holland Park Art Gallery, exhibiting artists from the contemporary emerging art markets, from 24 April – 11 May.

The show goes on with an Aabru Art Charity Day to benefit Tulsi Chanrai Foundation at La Petite Maison, a prestigious restaurant in Mayfair, London on 17 May.

Aabru Art and its founder Anshu Bahanda believe in the strength of their artists to portray their notable talent and in the stories that their art convey. A beautiful example is Kehinde Sanwo’s Tribal Influence, an oil painting on textured canvas. It is part of a series that pay tribute to Pablo Picasso’s career and visually illustrate, document and celebrate the influence of African Art, especially African masks and sculptures, on Picasso’s work. Is Picasso’s art the legacy of African Art?

The last two exhibitions were about the boundaries we have transcended. This year’s Transcending Boundaries 2015 is different – it’s about the boundaries that have yet to be transcended at many different levels and in many different layers.

The Aabru Art Mantra is and has always been ‘What do you want your legacy to be…’ Come and join us on this extraordinary journey…
