Please join us on Wednesday, February 8th from 5:00 to 6:00 PM at the Templin Hall Art Gallery for an opening reception and exhibition, featuring Professor Solomon Isekeije’s Color & Groove series.
Born in Lagos, Nigeria, Professor Isekeije studied fine arts at Obafemi Awolowo University in the country’s Osun State. He studied sculpture with Agbola Folarin, printmaking with Bruce Onobrakeya, and woodcarver Lamidi Fakeye, among others. He graduated with a Bachelors of Arts degree in 1992 and obtained his M.F.A. degree from Old Dominion University and Norfolk State University in 2002 with specializations in Printmaking and mixed media.
“As a professor of fine arts, I am a life-long learner who is always eager to explore new possibilities in order to bridge the human divide. Currently, I experiment with new media art, creating installations and digital projections for theatrical performances.”
He currently serves as the director of the Department of Visual and Performing Arts at Norfolk State University.
