At 70, Oshinowo Can’t Slow Down

About two years ago, acclaimed visual artist, Kolade Oshinowo, said he did not know what normally attracted collectors and other lovers of the paint and brush to his works.

As shared by Akpoti ..... 'Queen needs your help!!! Last night I, like many were disturbed about the news of a young lad burnt to death for attempting to steal garri. The images haunted my sleep.
