The Maker Lab
This year African Artists' Foundation expands on The Maker, our annual program focusing on young artists, through the creation of an exhibition space called "The Maker Lab".
Fidelis Joseph is a multi-disciplinary artist and a recent graduate of the prestigious Ahmadu Bello University where he studied Fine Arts. Fidelis was comissioned to create a custom mural on the exterior of The Maker Lab, embodying the ethos of the space which is geared towards showcasing emerging creatives. His process is captured here.
Three promising artists were selected from the open call as the first exhibitors. The inaugural exhibition, "Here is Home" features the works of Ayeni Olajide and Anthony Obayomi, two photographers who investigate elements of our built environment from complementary yet distinct perspectives.
