Collection: Omonu Salisu

Omonu Salisu is a dynamic and creative artist based in Abuja, Nigeria. He has typified abstract art with an artistic force that cuts across paintings representing figures with different shapes of heads.

In 2017, he began experimenting with lines, shapes, figures, and colours to form paintings that speak about socio-economic and politics within Africa, and he also uses colours to symbolize cultural emblems. His recent works are based on recreating human heads and figures and are translated with symbols (Motifs) which represent famous proverbs and maxims, record historical events, express particular attitudes or behaviour related to depicted figures, or concepts uniquely related to abstract shapes.
