A Nigerian-based multidisciplinary artist, Odetola’s practice focuses on socioeconomic, political, and ecological justice issues. He has garnered awards from around the world, including from UNESCO. Odetola moved back to a small remote town on the outskirts of Lagos during the pandemic. Bracing for what felt like the end of the world, he gradually discovered a sense of wholeness by watching locals immerse themselves in the magic of an ordinary day. These images create highly saturated scenes intended to portray hope, happiness, work, family and love, hygiene, ecological knowledge, and feelings in an abstract and aesthetical form. They serve as a commentary on our responsibility to reevaluate our overlooked values.
