Displacement, by Jekein Lato-Unah

Jekein Lato-Unah is a visual storyteller who marries different mediums of artistic expression, sometimes all at once. Lato-Unah is a prodigy becoming. Sequel to the It’s Not Furniture exhibition, she has been busy entering into a number of workshops and mentoring initiatives. She is currently completing a degree in Law from the University of Lagos.

Here she has created a series of drawings and paintings titled ‘Displacement’ modelled after the lives of real-life characters. She has created a world of colour, of form, of pattern and vibrancy which compels you to stare for a while.
