Artist, Joseph Ijoyemi showcases his collection of paintings in upcoming solo exhibition Jag Heter Tokunbo at the 508 Gallery.
This exhibition explores this journey from racial abuse to acceptance, the society of today, taking the viewer on a journey through each phase of his emotional barriers and the embrace of his culture.
The exhibition showcases playful paintings which are both abstract and figurative often experimenting with expressionistic portraits which are then disfigured and modified.
Joseph never intends to purposely paint a ‘self-portrait’, instead tends to see the bigger picture of how a young person would preserve it, seeing a reflection of themselves in him.
