Unfortunately due to illness Oke is unable to take part in the tour this year and his studio will not be open.
As an artist I wish the viewer to engage with what I represent visually. My genre is urban landscape so my goal is to draw the viewer into the canvas trying to make them feel what it is like to inhabit the space. I feel that the aesthetic of my work is important however getting viewers to engage with the space and topics related to shared communal edifices are equally as important. Getting people to think about their own lived space can unlock ideas of community living as well as an awareness that they even in the urban environment they are part of something that can also be beautiful.
