Other leading sales of the evening included David Dale’s Agidigbo, a glass beads on board from 2013, Abiodun Olaku’s Delta Symphony (2016), Kolade Oshinowo’s Mother and Child (1975), and Segun Aiyesan’s Rachael (2018).
This edition of the auction featured an exciting bidding war which resulted in Stanley Dudu’s Reading (2016) selling for more than 2x its reserve price. Emerging Artist, Nzennaya Barry Ikechukwu also had two works in the auction which were both sold on the night.
