Retro Africa is pleased to present, 'HYPERFLUX' ', a solo contemporary art exhibition by Williams Chechet.
Raised in Kaduna, Nigeria, Williams believes that art has the power to heal, inspire and bring people together, through art he gives back to his community, inspiring young artists in their pursuit of passion. Drawing references from the likes of Andy Warhol and Jean Michel Basquiat, Williams’ creative process is largely spontaneous. He explores the local, highlighting traditional leaders and various iconic imagery that has shaped Nigeria’s political history.
For this exhibition, the works of Williams Chechet are displayed with a theme centered on self-identity. The series to be featured in this upcoming show, oddly reminiscent of the work of artist Roy Lichtenstein, are a digital collage of features that form a single entity, creating a visual distortion while simultaneously keeping the illusion of coherence in the observed image, one that strongly resonates a sense of character and identity. Additional art installations will be featured across the gallery.
