Nigerian artist Abraham Ogunlende- PainterAbe, is a contemporary painter who began making professional works in 2014, reflecting both his personal experiences and pop culture, through color compositions and cross-generational references.
Ogunlende’s art, majorly created with acrylic paint and pastels on canvas, focuses on the subjective nature of things- aiming to communicate with viewers through a shared visual conversation.
His first show “Culture Shock” was held at Terra Kulture Gallery in 2014. Since then, he has continued to grow as a self taught artist, working with the women’s center in Abuja, and with brands like Lipton, and Absolut.
Abraham recently exhibited his latest series “A Wonderful Space”, as part of the Rele Gallery Young Contemporaries 2019 Exhibition.
