Owambe is a word commonly used by Nigerians meaning ‘African Party’. In this 36×36′ Owambe Gele Acrylic Painting, the women in the Yoruba attire are simplified to shapes. Owambe is a lavish and flamboyant party thrown by Nigerians which is usually characterized by a show of luxury, lavish spending, colour, extravaganza, paparazzi, lots of food, music, dance and networking. The origin is in Western Nigeria, particularly the Yoruba culture.
Colours and shapes work together as elements in this painting. This sort of shows the women showing off with the look on their faces. This is further emphasized with the enlarged size of their eyes which appears to be disproportionate and larger than normal.
This Painting was created by the brush strokes of Achike. It is created with a generally flat layer of acrylic paints on canvas.
