This exhibition features a series of paintings that blend cultural narratives, humor, and social commentary, reflecting Ogunmowo's multifaceted approach to art. His art challenges traditional ideas about humanity, advocating for a break from the norm and embracing anti-establishment views. Through his pieces, Ogunmowo brings Nigerian values and aesthetics into a conversation with the visual language of Los Angeles, blending cultures and histories in a unique and vibrant way. In this exhibition, Ogunmowo employs humor as a tool to address serious societal issues. His ability to encourage the viewer to contemplate significant social matters through a comedic lens is a hallmark of his work. The exhibition presents a body of work that not only reflects the current zeitgeist but also aims to challenge and reshape it. Ogunmowo's unique blend of humor and social commentary invites viewers into a deeper dialogue about society, probing the complex layers of American culture and contemporary societal issues.
The exhibition at Good Mother Gallery is more than just a display of art; it represents a cultural dialogue. Ogunmowo's art reflects the spirit of the times while pushing the boundaries of what art can communicate about our society. His work doesn't just capture moments; it sparks movements. The public is invited to join the opening reception on December 2nd, 2023, to experience the transformative power of Ade Ogunmowo’s art, which bridges cultures, challenges norms, and celebrates the human spirit. The exhibition promises to be a journey that interweaves personal narratives with broader social themes.
