Nuart 2017: Derek Mawudoku

Presented by the London-based poster gallery Flyingleaps, Derek Mawudoku’s quite underrated raw imagery arrived to Stavanger on the occasion of the 17th edition of Nuart Festival. Derek has a background as a monotype printmaker, which is clearly evident in the panels and posters he brought to Norway.

For his outdoor piece, he installed a large poster of a woman on a side-wall hidden in a lovely courtyard. It’s a powerful and intensely human portrait, which looks like an image taken straight from his sketchbook.

For the indoor exhibition ‘Rise Up!’ (3 Sept. – 15 Oct. 2017) –instead- Derek Mawudoku realized an intricate group portrait on eight huge panels and titled it “All the voices in my head”. This unsoftened emotional landscape was accidentally reflected into Know Hope’s black ink pool, with a mesmerizing final effect.
