(Born in 1944, Ogidi, Nigeria. Died in 2011, Ibadan, Nigeria.)
Twins Seven Seven was an artist, musician and dancer, whose complex work was stepped in Yoruba mythology and religion. He brought to life a world of human figures, divinities, plants, and animals via many techniques, incorporating painting, prints, engraving, wood relief and fabric painting. He was one of the original artists of the Oshogbo School, which developed in Nigeria in the 1960’s, and he went on to develop a highly original, modernist style, with paintings unraveling in their extraordinary detail.
Twins Seven Seven’s work has appeared in major exhibitions in the UK, France, Germany, Spain, Mexico, and the USA. He was designated UNESCO Artist for peace in 2005.
