Blue Cloth Installation Concept Visuals

For the 2019 Edition of 1-54 Contemporary African Art fai, I was commissioned to design the lounge area. Our installation was inspired by the unique concepts in Yoruba heritage & African Art. For this edition of 1:54, we look to Nigerian Textiles and the craftsmanship of cloth as a backdrop and source of inspiration with influences from the works of Nigerian Art Pioneer & artist Chief Nike Okundaye. We created visuals below to support our concept and design ideas with the aim to explore tactility, indigo blue hues and layered materiality
