Bruce Prins shows his new work at Terra Kulture.

South African artist Bruce Prins just opened a salon showing of his recent works at Terra Kulture. Bruce who works mainly in Acrylic cites his love of free expression and the support of a loving family as prime sources of motivation for his art.

In a touching moment, he showed off what he felt was his favourite piece, it was actually a portrait of his daughter.

Bruce’s style evokes comparison with Araism, it stems from the unique African expressiveness that utilises colour over other elements of art.

The showing is currently on at Terra Kulture’s gallery, Victoria Island, Lagos.

Here are some images from the opening.

On a night to remember, the hall was actually packed to the rafters for Chimamanda Adichie’s “AMERICANAH” book launch. Suffice it to say that sincerely you should go and get your own copy, or at the very least lend one to read. Only when one reads this new offering from Chimamanda Adichie will you understand the semi cryptic words of the late Chinua Achebe – “Adichie came almost fully made”; if you read the book you’ll understand why.

She succeeds in whisking you to a world of full bodied characters and spins words into moving images.

Americanah is not for your pretty book shelf, it belongs in your carry on at all times.

Here are some photos from the event.

2013 Spring Auction in pictures.

It has been a long time in the offing and with the preparations this year Terra Kulture and Mydrim Auction House have become the steady ship when it comes to this new love in the art industry; “The Art Auction”.

On the evening of the 19th of April 2013 , art lovers of every ilk came to Terra Kulture to attend the Art auction, many of them did one better by bidding and buying prized art pieces from established art masters to young artists alike. It is important to give kudos to the master of ceremonies on the evening, this Auction was handled fabulously by the Auctioneer Mr. Akinkugbe.

On a night where one can be forgiven for missing the real significance of the event, people came, art was sold, contacts were exchanged, some egos were bruised and important lessons learnt all around.

The most important lesson though was the addition of another chapter to what is actively becoming the playbook to successfully hosting Art auctions in Africa, a playbook that Terra Kulture and Mydrim Auction House are spearheading with aplomb.

Thats how good food tastes.

Whenever you are on the Island and you need to treat yourself, go to Terra Kulture. The restaurant offers Nigerian cuisine (A la carte) that is second to none. I should know seeing as I just had the Oha Soup with Poundo and Palm wine. Finished it up with a slice of their delectable carrot cake.

 

SOOO Happy!!!

 

Get yours too!!!IMG_0392 IMG_0396 Lagos-20130325-00330b
