Studio visit with Daniel Pengrapher Oshundaro for ‘FINESSE’: an exhibition of works featuring Daniel ‘Pengrapher’ Oshundaro, Muofhe Manavhela, and Valerie Etitinwo.
FINESSE shows the works of artists hitting their stride in terms of the incredible skill and impressive detail that forms their artistic practice and process. From the conceptualization of their works to the execution, up until they are hung on the walls, these artists and their attention to every brushstroke is a testament not only to the success of the final piece but also to their budding careers.
Daniel ‘Pengrapher’ Oshundaro is a Nigerian figurative abstract artist, sculptor, and muralist whose practice reflects and engages how his individualistic beliefs, aspirations, and personality become attached to the work he creates. His work represents the self-expression of thoughts and experiences from his environment by referencing classical compositions
using a combination of colours, lines, texture, and symbolism.
He received his BA in Creative Art from the University of Lagos, Nigeria, and his BA in sculpture from the Academy of Arts, Novi Sad, Serbia. In 2021, he was awarded a BEA scholarship to further his artistic journey. Pengrapher has participated in exhibitions like CLASSIQUE!
