The art of everyday Nigerian life

I've always loved the African hairdresser signboard, so much so that we commissioned our artist friend Yomi Aderinola to paint a series. He's just delivered them this evening. They are altogether lovely..

I love this and one of the words it brings to my mind is "tutu"

Beautiful paintings. Yet another example of worldclass Naija artistic talent! I don't s'pose Yomi would be interested in another commission....??
