“Black Market” Art Exhibition At The Osh Gallery Moved to August 2nd

by Seye KuyinuJuly 24, 2014

The Osh Gallery opens to the general public with an art installation by Pwavidon Mathias.

 

Black Market, an art installation by Pwavidon Mathias addressing the subject of fuel scarcity within a socio-political context. Initially billed for the 26th of July, it will open at The Osh Gallery on the 2nd of August, 2014. Mathias explores the various props and scenarios that characterise the all too familiar seasonal bouts of petroleum scarcity in the Nigerian state.

 

With his primary vehicle as the Jerrycan, a container designed for use in Germany army in 1937, the artist suggests a state of unconscious warfare hinged on the prevalence of these receptacles and their significance to the everyday living of the average Nigerian.

A hybrid of painting, sculpture and video art, Pavidon Mathias in this thought provoking project has strategically created a scenario where the viewer is subconsciously drawn into an organized disharmony of props, drawings, lighting and texts; engaging with his rebuilding of “Black Market”.

 

The artist seeks to create a link between the domino effect of the unavailability of petroleum resources and other salient realities that shape the everyday life of the Nigerian. On a broader and more universal plane, the artist prods the innate instinct of the human to hoard.

 

The Exhibition will start at 3pm on the 2nd of August, 2014 at The [...]

First Graphic Novel by Apologist Dr. Ravi Zacharias

by Seye KuyinuJune 18, 2014

Christian Newswire/ — This weekend, apologist Dr. Ravi Zacharias will debut his first graphic novel, The Lamb and the Fuhrer, at the International Christian Retail Show held at the Georgia World Congress Center. Based on his popular Great Conversations series, this graphic novel is the first in an expected series that covers imaginative conversations between Jesus Christ and historical world thought leaders.

Some might question why a man who has spoken at the United Nations, Oxford University and college campuses across the globe would make an intellectual transition to translate his apologetic work into a graphic novel. However, Zacharias has often underscored the importance of the arts in seeking to reach “a generation that listens with its eyes and thinks with its feelings.” “We are living in times when apologetics is indispensable,” says Dr. Zacharias, “but at the same time, we will need a Christian apologetic that is not merely heard, but is also seen.”

Kingstone Comics Publisher Art Ayris sees comics as much more than juvenile amusement. “Kingstone is very missional in communicating a Biblical worldview through our products. Due to the transcultural nature of comics we tend to look for properties that we think will perform and communicate well globally. This series, by an effective and renowned apologist, is perfectly suited for a global market. Interestingly, we have already had the highest pre-sell [...]

WestBow Press Offers a Beautiful and Broken Journey in the New Book Road Trip Mixtapes: Vegas, Red Bull, and Faith on a Detour

by Seye KuyinuFebruary 19, 2014

The new book Road Trip Mixtapes: Vegas, Red Bull, and Faith on a Detour, from debut author J. Churchill Morris, is hitting bookstores this month. Published by WestBow Press, a division of Thomas Nelson, the book is available in hardcover, paperback and eBook formats wherever books are sold.

The idea behind Road Trip Mixtapes started with one simple question: What would it look like to begin digging into the back stories of the people in the world around me? Observing human behavior, it seems that so often we see people through the lens of economic exchange. We measure the worth of a relationship much like a commodity and consider how much time to invest. With all this relational management, spontaneity is lost and more significantly, so is dignity. In this book, Morris takes us on a journey introducing us to real, beautiful, broken people.

Throughout the book, Morris gives a compassionate and understanding voice to difficult situations, using a self-aware sense of humor to illustrate some provocative points.

“These narrative essays are meant to raise questions and start conversations,” says Morris. “It is by no means a book of answers, simply thoughts, reflections and some anecdotes about life, faith and the detours along the way. Road Trip Mixtapes is about success and failure, grief, heartache and the questions we face on the journey.”

J. Churchill Morris is an Emmy Award-nominated songwriter and producer. Originally from Boston, MA, [...]
