Grand Art Exhibition - Against All Odds - Set To Hold In Lagos

In celebration of Adaora-Zinno Orara who’s down with stage 7 cancer

Blackhouse Media and Mydrim Art Gallery have announced a one of a kind art exhibition titled Against All Odds.

The exhibition will be showcasing the works of one of Nigeria’s most celebrated painters, Zinno Orara, in dedication to his Wife, Adaora-Zinno Orara, who is battling breast cancer against all odds.

Billed to take place from Friday 5 – Friday 12 December 2014 at Mydrim Gallery, 74B Norman Williams St. South West Ikoyi Lagos, the art exhibition promises to be one of the classiest the country has ever seen.

Born in 1965 in Benin City, the Artist Zinno Orara attended Government College, Ughelli and The school of Arts and Design, Auchi. He graduated in 1988 with a Distinction in Painting and Illustration. He also holds a masters degree in Philosophy.

CEO Blackhouse Media, Ayeni Adekunle Samuel had this to say about the artist and his paintings:

“Being a proud owner of some Zinno Orara’s paintings, I can say that his works are truly one of a kind, with the deep messaging and detailed finishing. It is impossible for a shallow thinker to make deep impressions that are awe inspiring like these works”

With over 12 solo exhibitions and 25 group exhibitions in Nigeria, South Africa, Sweden, Spain, United States and Canada, Zinno Orara’s paintings are present in art galleries all over the world; as well as with some of the world’s most dedicated collectors.

Zinno, whose unique and inspiring talent has not been eclipsed by the sadness following his wife’s ailment, gives brief insights to some of the paintings:

“Life is a journey, the painting Homeward Revisited is not just about the woman paddling her canoe home; it’s about life’s journey in its entirety. We will all go home someday and most times, we don’t know how it will all end.”

For the captivating painting, Love Isn’t Blue, Zino said:

“This is my story, love isn’t blue, love is red, depends on how much sacrifice you are willing to make.”

The artist’s wife of 20 years was diagnosed with cancer in stage 7, in 2010.

The couple is blessed with 4 children, 2 boys and 2 girls: Majiri, Chidera, Kesena and Princess.

Cancer is a deadly scourge that is gradually eating away the world’s population. It is the leading cause of death among women worldwide. According to statistics from WHO 508,000 women worldwide died of breast cancer in 2011 alone.

Ayeni concludes: ‘This exhibition is more than just an art showcase, it is in honor of Mrs. Adaora-zinno Orara - the most beautiful woman in the world - and every other person out there who is fighting the up-hill battle against cancer, against all odds.
