This week we are looking at art from Nigeria, including the work of Peju Alatise. We have spoken about how art communicates messages and why artists create. We worked out that Alatise often creates to make a statement about a political or unjust situation within her country.
TASK: Have a look at the pictures below and answer the key questions for EACH PICTURE (use the numbers/titles to help structure your answer).
– What can you see in the picture? Try and describe in as much detail as possible.
– What seems to be going on in the picture?
– Is the picture of children or adults? Men or women? Is it hard to tell?
– What do you think the artist is trying to say? What could it be about?
Remember to proof read your work carefully!
