For our debut at ART X LAGOS 2022, Affinity Art Gallery is pleased to present SWIMMING UPSTREAM, a collection of paintings, ceramics and an installation by Anne Adams, Damilola Onosowobo, Justice Mukhelli and Nene Mahlangu.

Damilola Onosowobo’s work uncovers questions bordering on perceptions of reality and lived experiences. Through the subtle use of tropes, composition, colours, light, and subject, she pulls together her artistic configurations and reconceptualises them within a modern cultural setting.

Her paintings are a deliberate rebellion from the structures and calculations from her background in design and see her oeuvre as ultimately a way to relax, observe and be present in the present.

Damilola lives and works in Lagos. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Architecture from the University of Lagos and has a Master’s degree in Environmental Design from the University of Lagos. Damilola is the Managing Partner and Executive Art Director at Dá Design Studio. Works from her design studio have been exhibited at Venice Design in 2019 and featured in publications. Recent exhibitions include Girls Run The World, Eclectica Contemporary, Capetown, South Africa, 2022, Coalesce, Affinity Art Gallery, Lagos 2021, Mother of Mankind, HOFA Gallery, London 2021 and Phenomenology of a black woman, For you Gallery, Dubai, 2021.
