Folárànmí, S, Olabisi Oparinde.  2006.  {Contemporary Mosaic Murals in Nigeria: The Worksof Elise Johnston}. Contemporary Issues in Nigerian Arts, its History and Education. (P.S.O Aremu, Ademuleya, Babasehinde, Ajiboye, Olusegun, Sheba, Ebenezer, Eds.).:358–373., Ile-Ife: Department of Fine Arts, Ọbáfémi Awólọ́wọ̀ University Abstract

Among the artistic media related to painting, mosaic is one of the most specialized, technically demanding and also most involved in terms of materials. Its decorative qualities on large surfaces and durability make mosaic particularly suitable for monumental purposes. Basically, this essay takes a look at a particular mosaic artist-Elise Johnston, her contributions to the architectural beauty in modern Nigeria, techniques, inspiration and her works. It will also look at the importance and function of mosaic decoration, its necessity in the design, form and overall aesthetics of our built-up environment, as well as suggesting means by which traditional mural decoration could be preserved by using mosaics. During the Byzantine Era, the art of mosaic reached its highest level of quality. Artists decorated floors, walls, vaults and facades of temples and palaces. They used pieces of marble, natural stones, coloured glass, even gold and silver. Themes were inspired by ancient myths, decorative elements from sea and earth, scenes of hunting, faces, emperors, and most of all themes inspired by the Christian religion that was dominant during this period. The usage of mosaic in modern Nigerian architecture is not very new, more so in global village such as we live today, where buildings are much similar in design between Lagos, Paris and Moscow. The use of materials is also very similar except in cases where weather conditions are considered. One of the factors that would definitely make a difference between buildings in Lagos and London will be the mosaic decorations richly embedded with traditional forms and motifs.

Akinọlá Lasekan (1916-1972) is regarded as one of the pioneers of Nigerian modernism, and an art educator. His artistic career have been discussed alongside other artists such as Aina Onabolu, Akeredolu, Ben Enwowu and others. Particularly his practice as Nigeria's first political cartoonist with the West African Pilot—a newspaper established by Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe and a principal weapon in the fight for African emancipation. His artistic contributions as a teacher at University of Nigeria (UNN) from 1961-1966, and University of Ife (Unife) from 1967-1972 has however received little mention. Four paintings in the collection of the Obafemi Awólọ́wọ̀ University Ile-Ife created during this period has also received little or no mention, which leaves a gap in art historical discourse and the relevance of these paintings to the history of the university and the old western region of Nigeria. This chapter therefore propose an analysis of these four paintings and the historical trajectory they present as visual elements. It will to focus on Akinọlás Lasekans sojourn as a university teacher at the University of Ife, and his role as a foundation member of the Ife Art School.

Fọlárànmí, SA.  2018.  {The Challenges and the Development of Style in Nigerian Art}. European Journal of Business and Management. 10:90–97., Number 9 AbstractWebsite

The development of artistic styles in the Nigerian art scene has developed almost along the same line as in other places worldwide, while the challenges facing the artist are almost the same everywhere. This may be so because these challenges are fundamental. The quest for identity, change, statement of purpose, sense of belonging, problem solving, and in some cases revolt, outright breaking of established art laws and most importantly personal experience are some of the influences and basis on which the creating or the development of styles in Nigeria rests upon. Some the styles and expression are new, while others are further developments, synthesis, or combinations from existing styles and techniques available in the different field of fine and applied arts. We are familiar with styles, which are trademarks of established and successful artists in our society; styles, which are a development of different art schools in Nigeria and in recent years the ones that are evolving among talented and creative young Nigerian artists. The later is what this paper seeks to examine. What are the challenges, Inspiration, and the motivation and most importantly influences behind these new innovations?

(Odeyinka, Henry, Aluko, Bioye, Amole, Oludolapo, Ademuleya, Babasehinde, {Daramola, Oluwole (Ọbáfémi Awólọ́wọ̀ University, Ile-Ife}, Nigeria.), Eds.).:97–107., Ile-Ife: Faculty of Environmental Designs and management Obafemi Awolowo University, Abstract

Art has always been and is still being used as a veritable tool in the hands of artists in promoting the Christian religion. Sculptures, mosaics, murals and stained-glass are some of the artistic media used to augment the aesthetic appeal of church architecture and most importantly earn the Christian faithful better concentration. However, the quest for larger spaces to accommodate the growing population of Christian converts and recent development in the built environment led to the demolition/renovation of existing structures and as a result churches give little or no room for the survival of some artworks. Artworks such as murals and stained-glass which are directly executed or fitted permanently on walls are usually affected as a result of these developments. This paper identified and analyzed the existing stained-glass in selected churches in Ibadan with a view to establishing their functions and relevance in the public spaces. The study adopted art historical methodology by using direct observatory and descriptive analysis. Interviews were conducted with key informants in the study area. Findings revealed that most churches with stained-glasses in the study area are old churches belonging to the Catholic, Methodist and Anglican denominations, and that many new churches no longer incorporate stained-glass in their churches, thereby depriving the built environment of this artistic form. It recommends that some of these churches be designated as tourist sites and be preserved for the good of the built environment as it is practiced in developed nations of the world.

Abstract

An online survey was conducted to identify factors associated with financial insecurity, food insecurity and poor quality of daily lives of adults in Nigeria during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. The associations between the outcome (experience of financial loss, changes in food intake and impact of the pandemic on daily lives) and the explanatory (age, sex, education level, anxiety, depression, HIV status) variables were determined using logistic regression analysis. Of the 4439 respondents, 2487 (56.0%) were financially insecure, 907 (20.4%) decreased food intake and 4029 (90.8%) had their daily life negatively impacted. Males (AOR:0.84), people who felt depressed (AOR:0.62) and people living with HIV -PLHIV- (AOR:0.70) had significantly lower odds of financial insecurity. Older respondents (AOR:1.01) had significantly higher odds of financial insecurity. Those depressed (AOR:0.62) and PLHIV (AOR:0.55) had significantly lower odds of reporting decreased food intake. Respondents who felt anxious (AOR:0.07), depressed (AOR: 0.48) and who were PLHIV (AOR:0.68) had significantly lower odds of reporting a negative impact of the pandemic on their daily lives. We concluded the study findings may reflect a complex relationship between financial insecurity, food insecurity, poor quality of life, mental health, and socioeconomic status of adults living in Nigeria during the COVID-19 pandemic.
