The second cohort of artists in our residence programme, A.I.R.Brush, features Stacey Okparaverro (Nigeria), Timothy Wandulu (Rwanda) and Lionel Yamadjako (Benin).

About the Artists
LIONEL YAMADJAKO is a multi-faceted contemporary artist from Benin Republic who works primarily with Painting, collage, photography, drawing and mixed media art. He grew up in the capital, Cotonou in the 80s and 90s and honed his creative skills from a tender age. He has attended numerous workshops and artist residencies across different African countries which have helped to shape his visual vocabulary over time. His most recent works speak of relationships between human beings and their day- to- day social, economic, religious and political activities. Lionel has exhibited in quite a number of African, Asian and European countries and lives and works in Cotonou, Benin when he is not travelling.

STACEY OKPARAVERO is a Nigerian based multidisciplinary artist and curator whose work addresses social, political and emotional issues that resonate deeply with her. She has worked under the mentorship of established Nigerian artist, Dr. Bruce Onobrakpeya for some time. This has in turn had some influence on her recent work as she explores the materials and expands the boundaries and possibilities of the techniques through rigorous research and experiments. Her recent participation in the 2016 Dakar Biennial established her presence on the international art scene. She has exhibited at the Suba Biennale, Dak’Art Off, in the prestigious Centre International de Conférences Abdou Diouf (CICAD) and Art X Lagos in November 2016, just to mention a few platforms that her works have graced.

TIMOTHY WANDULU is a 27-year-old contemporary artist of Rwandese nationality. He grew up in Kampala, an artful and super active city, whose environment saw him grow his innate gift of being creative in any medium that best delivers his message to the society around and beyond. He took up art in High School which equipped him with the skills and knowledge that have fueled his creative practice up to this day. His work addresses social-cultural themes revolving around taboos, belief systems, religion, education, gender issues and politics. He has exhibited Widely in Rwanda and abroad.
