Móyòsóré Martins

April 2024 – Current

 

Móyòsóré Martins is a New York-based Nigerian contemporary artist taking the art world by storm. He’s a renaissance man who dabbles in graphics, product design, and music. MOYO’s paintings are profoundly narrative and embody his personal journey. He embodies his traditional Afro-cultural, spiritual roots and fashion-forward sense of aesthetics.

Born of Brazilian descent with both parents from Ekiti state, Nigeria, MOYO developed a sense of mixed cultural independence from his family’s tribal roots and developed his artistic vision from his travels and upbringing. Inspired by the streets of London and New York, his college years in Ghana and Ivory Coast blend into his artwork while expressing his Yoruban cultural roots.

MOYO is self-taught and is primarily influenced by his internal vision and not necessarily by other artists. For him, his work is spiritual in nature and represents his wishes and dreams and his path forward.

As part of Moyo’s residency in Senya Beraku Ghana we held a one-off exhibition of some of the works created and in progress at The Front Back Arts Club Accra – See below for details.

“For One Night Only” is an exclusive art exhibition event set to take place on Sunday, May 12th, 2024, from 5:00 PM to 10:00 PM. This special occasion offers attendees the unique opportunity to immerse themselves in the captivating works of Móyòsóré Martins, a Nigerian contemporary artist whose artistry transcends cultural boundaries. In collaboration with Front/ Back Accra, this event promises an evening of artistic exploration and cultural celebration, where artworks will be available for purchase.

The Artist:
