Glass mosaic, cement

This colorful mosaic is by Chief Jimoh Buraimoh. He is one of the most influential artists to emerge from the 1960s experimental workshops in Nigeria known as the Osogbo School of Art, which helped introduce a particular style of modern African art to western cultures. Characteristic of the school, much of his work intermingles traditional Yoruban styles and Western culture. Prolific in oil painting and etching, as well as his signature bead paintings and mosaic murals, his colorful large-scale mosaic murals adorn public areas in Nigeria, Europe and the United States.
