We recently met with the curator of the Omenka gallery Oliver Enwonwu, who is also the son of the legendary Ben Enwonwu. The gallery welcomes artistes from across Africa, providing an opportunity to expose their works to a global audience.

Here are some of the pieces we had the opportunity to view at our recent visit.
