Art Description

Painting: Oil, Iron, Bones, Mixed media on Canvas, Iron, Paper.

This artwork is about the recent economic recession in Nigeria, where negative growth was recorded for the fifth consecutive quarter. The art work aims to reveal how people are unable to feed their families and meet their immediate needs. It explains the period of recession where Nigerians were suffering just make ends meet.
The decline in Nigeria’s economic activity left the country in disarray. It adversely affected the economy especially in the areas of wholesale-retail sales, industrial production, employment, real income, gross domestic product. Nigerians lost jobs massively; famine and hunger rented the air as food prices were inflated.
The artwork captures how people were just stranded and perplexed looking for help where there is none. It encapsulates how Nigerians endured the hardship, with some living fake lives, despite the sadness and grief that enveloped the country during the recession
