Art lovers especially photography lovers had a refreshing Easter package as young classic-contemporary artist, Mr. Tunji Lana unveiled his maiden photography collection titled – “LanaBlack Is“, through an open one week exhibition Terra Kulture, Victoria Island, Lagos.
The unveiling the exhibition which opened on Friday April 10, afforded viewers the opportunity to see the images from an extraordinary photography exhibition which showcases the ability of one man to reach into the farthest recesses of his mind and provoke its audience to believe that man can recreate anything in any way that he so desires.
The collection is a display of the artist’s visual interpretation of a mind-set that he is urging the world to be magnetized by, appreciate and adopt. Technically, the LanaBlack Photography concept captures the expressive nature of light and shade, springing forth tones and textures that ultimately takes the viewer though a new experience.
According to Terra Kulture’s veteran Curator Ms. Aderonke Akinyele, “LANABLACK is a “style” of photography art which speaks to the viewer to see the world in a different way. It is a very imaginative and expressive creative form of photography which demands the audience to see a new perspective of what ordinarily is and stretch the imaginative power of the human mind.
Mr. Tunji Lana, the originator of LANABLACK noted that the concept of art also has a message for mankind, that it is designed to challenge, provoke and excite people. He clearly stated that it is a mind-set that is not unbending but a re-creation that makes “everything international” where every object has an opportunity to become more and every subject has the opportunity to see what could be more.
