We are proud to introduce Kemi Onabule as the artist we have chosen for our first solo online exhibition. All of her work can be found here.
Kemi will also be doing an Instagram takeover @squaregallery_london so you can get to know her better. Be sure to take a look!
Kemi Onabule graduated from Wimbledon College of Arts in 2016 with a BA in Painting. She has been selected for several awards including the Clyde & Co 2016 award and the HIX Award 2017. The paintings of Kemi Onabule deal mainly with the home and domesticity and its effect on the individual. The objects and occasionally people that populate her paintings may all be described as players on a stage or set that is constructed out of the various elements of domestic life. The imagery itself comes from photographs, direct observation and memories that are combined to create versions of heightened yet familiar domestic scenes. Through her work she hopes that people reexamine the environments that they call home and take a closer look what might be expressed by the individual through their domestic setting.
