About Orilafinju

Orí is a Yoruba metaphysical concept. Ori, literally meaning “head,” refers to one’s spiritual intuition and destiny. It is the reflective spark of human consciousness embedded into the human essence, and therefore is often personified as an Orisha (god) in its own right.  -Wikipedia

Afinju means a neat and cautious person. One who pays doting attention to self and environment. It equally connotes aesthetics, taste, excellence, being polished and fashionable.

Spending 6 months of the national quarantine period together, both artists working daily on their private projects decided to host a show. Although the intention to hold a father-son exhibit had surfaced since 2018 but had little effort invested as both artists were deeply involved in their practices.

Gbenga viewed pet bottle like human relationships. People tend to discard valuable ties as soon as the benefits are gone or no longer needed. Metaphorically, this is what he called a “Table water syndrome”. Hence, a synergistic drive between Gbenga’s upcycle art and Segun’s subjects founded a theme: Orí L’Afínjú.
