The African Artists’ Foundation recently concluded its Arts Salon tagged We Are Love which was opened on Saturday the 8th of February marking the first Arts Salon for the year 2014 by AAF. The exhibition brought together 9 Nigerian Artists: Tyna Adebowale Tolu Aliki, Ike Gerald Chiemieze, George Edozie, Obinna Makata, Yomi Momoh, Obi Nwokedi, Chike Obeagu, Uche Uzorka with different styles and techniques but unified by a common team and medium of expression-visual art. The artists reflected the society in their different style as they give their different artistic interpretations to the team of the Salon- “We Are Love”.

I had the opportunity of meeting and chatting with Tyna Adebowale; the only female Artist whose works featured in the exhibition.  Her works just like most artists were informed by the happenings in our society; they are social commentaries expressed in Pidgin English. She used such illustrations as Chop Clean Mouth, Who Be Your Papa? Govt in Our Bedrooms. The exhibition attracted artists, art lovers and collector.
