Zinno Orara set to hold Life’s A Journey Exhibition
Zinno Orara, an award winning artist and one of Nigeria’s most celebrated artistes, returns with another art exhibition, which he has titled ‘Life is a journey’.
Life is indeed a journey. Like every journey, life has a beginning and an unpredictable end. For the artist’s wife, Adaora-Zinno Orara, the end came sadly in 2014 after a long-running battle with stage 7 cancer.
Losing one’s loved one especially a wife is never an incident to forget in a lifetime. It is one of those life events that keeps one on the floor. For Zinno however, he chose to translate the pain into a legacy for his darling wife.
Being the resilient hard worker that he is, he put his feelings and faith into his work and released a mind-blowing body of work called ‘Against All Odds’, which is a thought-provoking body of work that to this day, is still a major point of reference among avid and respectable art lovers and curators.
Fast forward to this year and Zinno hasn’t stopped being one of the most celebrated painters in the country. The success recorded by his previous body of works goes before him and it speaks volumes. This year, he launches another art exhibition, which he has titled ‘Life is a journey’.
As expected, the exhibition would showcase various thought-provoking and creative works painted by Zinno himself.
Set to take place from Saturday 25th of November, running through the 4th, December 2017, the exhibition will hold at Terra Kulture Gallery Plot 176, Tiamiyu Savage, off Ahmadu Bello way, Victoria Island Lagos, as it promises to be one of the classiest the country has ever seen.
Zinno expressed his excitement about the exhibition saying; “Life’s Journey consists of a series of thought provoking works that depict our voyage through life as humans, the good, the highs and lows, our opportunities, heartaches and our eventual sojourn to the unknown. This promises to be an exciting exhibition.”
Zinno has had over 12 solo exhibitions and 25 group exhibitions in Nigeria, South Africa, Sweden, Spain, United States and Canada. His paintings are present in art galleries all over the world; as well as with some of the world’s most dedicated collectors.
