The Dodorowski’s Knock-Offs exhibition will be produced and presented by A Whitespace Creative Agency.

The Dodorowski’s Knock-Offs exhibition is the second series of Abba Makama’s, vibrant acrylics. In these works, the artist utilizes parody to tackle the subjects of love, death, fashion, and power with bold paintings.

Abba T. Makama is a visual artist and award-winning filmmaker. Notable for his feature film Green White Green which premiered at TIFF 2016 (Toronto International Film Festival) and currently available on Netflix worldwide. He has had two solo exhibitions, HYPNAGOGIA 2016 at Iamisgo showroom and IMAGES FROM THE UNCONSCIOUS 2017 at Art Clip Radisson Blu V.I.

Abba’s stark use of colours will compel the audience in a state of hypnosis by the eccentric pop-era inspired paintings, as they invoke not only humor but a reflection. Abba’s re-imagination of the word “knock-offs” becomes transformed from its superficial interpretation into something that can be referred to in the human form.

As we take this journey into Abba’s creative thinking, he gives the audience a unique opportunity to explore his vivid and critical imagination.

The event is set to hold at Whitespace Creative Agency, 59 Raymond Njoku Street, Off Awolowo Road, Ikoyi, Lagos
