A Study of Selected Mixed Media Paintings by Jimoh Buraimoh

Nics O. Ubogu


Jimoh Buraimoh’s artworks make a meaningful statement in the development of mosaic bead painting in Nigeria. His art forms are symbolic and associated with themes derived from the culture and daily activities of the Yorubas and Edos. This paper will examine selected art works from Buraimoh’s mosaic mixed media bead paintings, namely, “Obatala and Devil”, “Installation of an Oba”, “Romance of the Headload”, “Endless World” and “Ere Ibeji”. Buraimoh’s works reflect the formalist approach which is largely evident in the styles and techniques of his painting. This study will focus on the description, interpretation and evaluation of his works against the backdrop of modern art in Nigeria.

Keywords: mixed media, beads, mosaic, art forms.
