  • Use of Media by Contemporary Nigerian Artists to Develop Metaphoric
           Concept in Painting

    • Authors: JOSHUA; John Oyedemi, ONOJA, Jacob Enemona
      Abstract: This paper is intended to arouse a discourse in the use of media in developing metaphoric concept in painting in the Nigerian contemporary art space. The question pertinent to scholars include; which are the most used media and why? Is the acceptance and patronage by collectors and buyers what determine the use of media of expression? Other reasons could be the art curriculum in higher institution of learning, individual and public perception and resourcefulness and a host of other personal preferences. Artists’oil colour is the most popular medium of expression from available resource materials. It is envisioned that other media like watercolour, mixed media, pastel, enamels, charcoal, tempera, acrylic, ink and pen, would become a focus for artists. Artists within and outside Nigeria were reviewed and their works. It is expected that artists would take up the challenge to start exploiting other media of expression in painting. Key Words: Media, Contemporary, Artists, Metaphoric, Painting
  • Potency of Satirical Art In Nigeria: An Assessment Of Satirical Art Forms

    • Authors: ONOJA; Jacob Enemona
      Abstract: Satirical art forms are fast becoming a potent media of expression among artists and the general populace. This powerful and potent art form has been used to stir laughter and also point to a potent message in the observer. Cartoons, paintings and sculptures have been used as media of expression in art to pass messages across to people on various societal issues. This paper is an attempt to explore the potential of satire in the various genres of plastic art to propagate messages. In Nigeria as other countries where the satirical genres of art have moved the people to action on state matters, founding fathers in the Nigerian art scene and other artists of repute have used satirical cartoons and other art forms to advance their positions on colonialism and other issues of national interest. Satirical art plays a great role in changing the psyche of the people toward various issues in the society and should be encouraged by all and sundry. Key words: Satire, Art, potency, media.
  • Typology of Forms of Painting in Nigeria

    • Authors: Razaq Olatunde Rom Kalilu; Johnson Adelani Abodunrin
      Abstract: Painting in the 21st century artistic terrain of Nigeria is very vibrant. While scholarship on Nigerian art and painting are of relatively appreciable richness, the typology of the physical forms of painting has apparently not been of concern in scholarship. Whereas, the physical forms of painting are important in the interplay of contents and the overall significance of paintings. This study is therefore a typological analysis of forms of painting in Nigeria and was conducted with a view to determining the variations in the forms of painting. Samples for the study were 1,120 paintings, produced between 1970 and 2013 by academically trained artists, randomly collected in field work conducted between 2010 and 2013. Detailed typology was done using size and shape, media and genre. The study established that the paintings come in three shapes in order of preference and occurrence viz: rectangle, square and circle.  For size, they come in a pecking order of occurrence of medium size, large size and small size. Media wise, oil paint is the most preferred and next to which is acrylic, mixed media, water colour, ink, gouache/poster and pastel. Four genre categories respectively of figural painting, landscape painting, still-life painting and non-objective painting were established. Keywords: Typology, Variation, Forms, Painting, Art, Nigeria.
  • Nigeria’s Niger Delta and the Challenges of Environmental
           Stewardship: The Need for Cautious Eco-aesthetics.

    • Authors: Onyema Emeni
      Abstract: The Niger Delta region has been embroiled in acts that are under gird by environmental infraction of great magnitude.These acts point to the absence of environmental stewardship and a concern for eco-ethics. Multi-national oil companies are responsible for these acts. The absence of care from these oil companies for the environment and the people has its own twist. In this regard the indigenes have fallen on erstwhile technologies of brewing local gin for refining oil in conditions that further compromise of the environment. In this paper, documentary photographs by artists on these conditions are relied upon to foster eco-aesthetics. A focus on eco-aesthetics as this paper is defined is an approach to rely on art and its literacy to ameliorate the consequences of abject environmental stewardship. Key words Aesthetic education, Artists, Environment, Eco- aesthetics, Eco-ethics, Ken Saro-Wiwa, Niger Delta, Nigeria, Poets
  • Combating Human Trafficking in Nigeria: The Role of the Visual Arts

    • Authors: Sweet Ufumwen Ebeigbe
      Abstract: This essay takes a critical look at the problem of human trafficking in Nigeria and how the visual arts can be used as a means of stemming this worrisome and embarrassing problem that has become a global dilemma. It argues that the visual arts and artists can be mobilized fully and productively for the purpose of re-directing and re-educating Nigerians towards cultivating a more positive approach to life. Specifically, it advocates the use of art as a veritable tool for engendering the development of women and young girls in the areas of self-reliance, self-confidence and social integration as well as   in re-orientating and sensitizing them towards the ills of trafficking in persons. The areas discussed include: the financial empowerment of women through the visual arts, the use of museums and galleries as teaching and mass mobilisation outlets, creating public awareness through art competitions, exhibitions, lectures, seminars, workshops and public art, the rehabilitation of victims through art therapy and the establishment of out-of-school art organizations and recreational centres such as art clubs, camps and hobby centres. Keywords: Human Trafficking, Nigeria, Art Exhibitions, Art Clubs, Museums and Galleries
  • Light and Colour Symbolism in Arab Architecture

    • Authors: Wail Houssin
      Abstract: Light and colour as important categories of expressing architectural environment play a significant role in the development of the modern architectural language in Arab architecture. Traditional light and colour complexes belong to the coding structures of the architectural language that reflect the ethnic integrity of the society. Their changes express cultural transformations. Gradual complication of colour scheme and light structures is connected with the culture of this region becoming more complicated due to the development of Islamic philosophy and specific symbolism as well as the development of production that helped modulating the flow of light and get more colour nuances for construction materials. Keywords: architectural language, light, colour, Arab architecture

  • Essential Elements of Spatial Definition in Theatre Architecture

    • Authors: Esekong H. Andrew
      Abstract: This study on “Essential Elements of Spatial Definition in Theatre Architecture” examines space as a vital element of design used in architecture for both aesthetic and practical purposes. Every structure is built in space, and the use of interior and exterior space in architecture is determined by the function for which a building is meant. In theatre architecture, space is broken down into functional areas to serve direct and allied needs of theatre performers and audience members. This paper assesses the nature and character of the different spaces created in the theatre house and the functions they serve. It examines the effects of architectural materials, features and space plan on the acoustic shaping of the theatre auditorium. The paper adopts the architectural mantra “form follows function”, submitting that the appropriateness of a theatre house in terms of serving its practical and aesthetic functions is dependent on architectural space management. Keywords: Spatial definition, Theatre architecture
