Tayo Tekovi's Art in Italy
Piscatores (05/08/2010)
I was fortunate to meet Tayo Tekovi Quaye in the early years. In 1980, I was fascinated by his first abstract work "Dancing Masquerade", which is now in the collection of the Smithosinian Museum. Looking back, I remember asking him why most of his works are so illustrative, and filled with incredible line details. He looked at me keenly and said "constructivism is an important aspect of art. The lines lead the eyes on a journey". Recently, I saw two of his works in Italy. The lines keeps flowing.

The dynamic artist, Tayo Tekovi Quaye
Tana (03/05/2010)
I attended Tayo Tekovi Quaye's very first exhibition at the Univesity of Arkansas, Fayetteville, in 1979. Beautiful palette of colors graced his deep-etching prints, filled with various African traditional motifs and patterns, illustrating centuries old customs of his people and continent. What is interesting about his 1995 painting "The Search", is the artists continuous search to present the stories of his people through his art. This time focusing on poverty in the midst of plenty, in an abstract form.
