Presentation

Samson Bakare is a Nigerian-born, multidisciplinary artist based in Lagos, who is known for his portrayal of dark toned bodies with dynamic flowery background. He arrays his semi-figurative subjects in brilliant colours, making an audible aesthetic statement. His work is characterized by protruding eyes, distinctively detailed Iris and Pupil. Bakare became known after his collaboration with Gucci. Bakare has also engaged people at The Cultural Summit Abu Dhabi, discussing critical matters of decolonization, restitution, and identity on a panel with Fiammetta Rocco, Ashley Shaw-Scott Adjaye and professor Monica Hanna. His sculptures have also been featured on the front page of Dada Magazine.
