Burna Boy is surely from a family deeply involved in creative endeavours as the unveiling of his younger sister, Nissi Ogulu, a 20-year-old 2nd Year student of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Warwick in the UK would show even further.
With a veteran broadcaster and award winning music critic,Benson Idonije as grandfather and A-list music artiste brother, Nissi is well on her way in her own journey to the creative world. The young woman, apart from her painting skills, plays several musical instruments and sings afro jazz well enough to give many in the Nigerian music industry a run for their money.
The works on display are of an artist one would consider an old soul. Be it a painting of a ‘Massai Warrior from East Africa’ or an abstract piece which serves as a reflection of the current times, one thing that is certain is that Norrd has the look of art, which can be termed contemporary but yet nostalgic in the same space.
Words from the artist which say one thing, no barriers.
Therefore, the audience in mind for these works should not differ as there is something on display for everyone. So, whether you’re a banker or a trader, a doctor or a plumber, you’re invited to come, view and buy the works which are part of the Norrd Exhibition which are currently on display at Terra Kulture, Victoria Island until January 9, 2014.
