The Art of Health Care | Black History Celebration | Sophia Oshodin

Wednesday 12th October

Free Space Project is excited to announce our first of our series of talks entitled The Art of Health Care

 

Within these talks, we will be spotlighting artists and those who work in the health care field to speak about their experiences and the impacts on art in the health and care sphere.

The first of the talks falls in the month of October, black history month. We will be celebrating this with this talk inviting Sophia Oshodin, our current exhibition artist in our award winning gallery space, to speak about her art works.

Sophia Oshodin is a self-taught figurative painter based in London.

She is known for visual storytelling centres around the spirit of every day using imaginary subjects. Her paintings are notable for their bold colours and patterns that engage the views to their own interpretations.

Sophia explores the artistic convention and movement in the vibrancy of daily life and complexities that humans experience using figuration with a gazing expression to highlight the absence of black figures in western art. Drawing inspiration from African arts, Art history, Old masters’ works, contemporary arts, fashion, politics, colours and memories.

A large part of her practice entails collecting shared memories and photographs from the popular culture between people in their everyday activities. Combining imaginary figures to create a narrative with a gazing expression to celebrate the beauty and colours as it exists in people, places, and the community in a way that holds joy.
