Colour Purge’s ‘Peculiar Mess’ Shows Art In A Less ‘Sadder Note’

Reviewed by Twitter User, Ejiroghenetegha, Perculia Mess, shows just how exciting art can be especially for the people who are not entirely in the space.

Recounting from the event, Ejiroghenetegha shared his firsthand experience at the colour purge’s second installment of ‘peculiar mess.’

Color Purge 0.2 is a creative art session with seasoned artists who will lead you in uncovering and exploring your ability to create art

Time is 12:40 pm and I saunter into the Nest Hub Premises – venue for the event, I see someone who ushers me into the main venue for the event: A backyard with colored bamboo planks /tires, a table on the left littered with papers, paintbrushes and paint with few people seated and standing around it. And on the right are about five plain mini-canvases eagerly waiting to be feasted on.

I see few faces painted already and I also indulge myself in a painting on my wrist. I step out for a little bout of fresh air and I see an artiste documenting graffiti on the wall, His words – “PENKELE MESS

Meanwhile, just few inches to the entrance on both flanks are two large papers with scribble – like drawings on it having similarities to a map. On it, attendees are enjoined to paint the squares with different colors portraying their moods from indifference to disgust to hope and other moods as regards the country. The bulk of paintings on those papers showed the exasperated state Nigerians are in! – Sad but true.

Then one of the organizers gives an opening address – Citing the Theme ‘Penkele Mess’ and how it came into fruition – A Notion used to express dissatisfaction at an awry state of affairs in the country whilst also leaning on the narrative as the event been a form of escapism from the harsh realities of the country. This was even bolstered after hearing the sad ordeal of an artist who recently was denied visa at the US Embassy on the basis of being a “Nigerian”.
