After the royal visit of HRM, Oba Kabiru Adewale Shotobi, the Ayangburen of Ikorodu Kingdom to Oshodi art gallery on the 20th of May 2022, the creative entity has since recommended procuring one of its royal expositions to the waterbed region.
According to Dr Oshodi Seyi Paul, CEO of Oshodi Art Gallery in a chat with Ikorodu News Network (INN) disclosed that ‘Art of the throne’ is a Royal Art exhibition event that reflects or displays the traditional heritage of Nigeria’s geographical regions.
Synonymous with different Crowns which symbolise the authority and trajectory of the land, the concept is meant to propel tradition in a nutshell.
“Different folklore portrays their style of ancestry, leadership, culture and approach to things in their unique way” Dr Oshodi explains
“Art of the throne is another visual sensation from our great stable that showcases our artistic genealogy with colour and refinement, adding more significance to our numerous origins”
The CEO further stated the reason for which he’s compelled to facilitate the royal event.
“When the Ayangburen of Ikorodu visited the gallery and aired his irresistible backing for our distinct courses, I hinted to him about ‘The art of the throne event, which is befitting of his royal majesty and the entire traditional rulers in Ikorodu division, which he obliged to” He said.
Dr Oshodi later asserted that the event is slated to happen around August 2022, with subsequent information to get to the press soon.
