Issue 9 of Ìrìnkèrindò: a Journal of African Migration is published

TITLE : STRUGGLING FOR SURVIVAL. (36 by 36 inches) by Gbolade Omidiran. This painting's medium is oil paints on black velvet rendered with various sizes of palette knives and not a single brush stroke. It was made in 2015. An impasto of striking colors that involves a lot of painstaking work.
DESCRIPTION: All over the world, people strive and struggle to survive. Whether in the most remote forest of Ijero Ekiti or the busiest streets of Lagos or New York, we all have one thing in common 'Struggling for Survival'. This painting though abstract in expression denotes the struggles in the rural African market to make a living. A variety of African indigenous foods and goods are displayed with the traders' frantic efforts to make sales, aimed at achieving survival.
