An Instinctive Journey through Time and Space on a Path to Find Place
My work is defined by markings as a process of visual expression. In repetitions and in colours, these markings form a pattern or language as a way of understanding emotion and body in space.
These new works explore the narrative of markings around various themes which explore ‘Markings’ as: scarification, identity, paths, journeys, body in space, energy; all occupying space.
About the Artist:
Farouk Adegboyega Agoro is an artist and architect based in Brixton, London. Originally born and raised in Lagos, Nigeria to a Nigerian father and Jamaican mother, he moved to England as a young teenager to attend school. Farouk’s parents studied in the USA in the 1960-70s before returning to Nigeria to settle and he was greatly influenced by their music, art and literature collections from that period. His father, now a retired town planner, was always sketching and doodling while his mother, a retired pharmacist, is still very crafty – crocheting, sewing, making dolls, quilts, bags etc… Farouk was surrounded by a lot of creativity which guided him towards him pursuing architecture as a career.
He has been working as an architect for over 12 years and has been painting on and off during that period. With a desire to pursue other creative projects, he decided to divert more attention in the past three years to his passion for painting as a form of expression.
