Artist: Moyo Okediji
Title: Gift of Love
Medium: Bodypainting, photography.
Well, since Facebook won’t let me show you anything that a baby can’t see, I will show you glimpses of the fun we artists have with the human figure.
There is nothing as beautiful as the human figure. And in the studio, when I have the camera, some ẹfun (kaolin) and osùn (camwood), èédú (charcoal), perhaps a cup of red wine, (preferably palm wine), I can blow your mind with love as I celebrate the beauty of the human figure.
I can sing the song of every strand of hair that nature has placed on every inch of your body.
If Facebook would let me, I’d blow your mind, yes, I would, my friend.
Yet, dear friend, this is a gift of love, and in Yoruba art, we call it Olúmẹ̀yẹ.
The last time I showed what is behind the mask, Facebook blocked me for three months. Hahahaha.
You want some more?
One day I will publish a book of my body paintings.
I have a couple of thousands of images to choose from.
