The Architecture, Design & Art Library is pleased to present a new student art exhibit.
Emmanuel Oluwaseyi Bamtefa’s Culture for the People will be on display August through October.
Bamtefa is a visual artist from New York and of Yoruba descent. He has been an active artist since 2012 and is interested in portraiture and figure painting. Bamtefa is in his senior year at the University of Houston School of Art.
“As an artist, I look to introduce life of a certain people that is not familiar to the western world. I want to introduce people to a major people’s way of life through imagery and abstraction using different mediums. In this exhibition, I will focus on abstraction of reality from today’s society coming from my upbringing with the things I learnt from my perspective to things that I felt was necessary to talk about.”
A reception will be held on August 9 at 12 noon, free and open to the public. The first 10 guests will receive a gift.
