Spending an afternoon with the artist and teacher Gbolade Omidiran was rare treat.

I was truly inspired and my spirit soared as I toured his studio and gallery, chatting with Gbolade and his students. Here are more pictures from the visit. Enjoy.

One of Gbolade`s strengths is definitely his versatile style. This abstract piece draws the eye in with the mellow brown background.

Apart from his own original paintings, Gbolade`s gallery is teeming with many pieces of African art personally picked out to showcase the depth of local talent available. These include: amazing sculptures in fine wood, pottery and metal work.
