(Born in 1943, Osogbo, Nigeria. Lives and works in Nigeria.)
Jimoh Buraimoh’s bead paintings are his most famous works, and are reminiscent of traditional Yoruba beaded cloaks, staffs, crowns and stools. The artist strings beads on cotton thread and adheres them to the surface of a board. When placed close together on a flat surface, the beads create raised surfaces, a variety of shapes and an illusion of depth.
His work has features at the Contemporary African Art, from the Collection of William Jones, Aljira, Center for Contemporary Art and is on display at the National Museum of African Art Smithsonian Institution, Washington DC; the National Gallery of Modern Art, Lagos; and the British Broadcasting Corporation, London.
