Combining Two Different Forms Of Art

Lizamore-RGB-LOGO-green.png

Our New Collaboration with Lizamore & Associates!

During recent photo shoots, we began to notice that some of our clients incorporated works of art into their open plan kitchen living spaces. Often, as designers, we will include images of paintings or sculptures into our display photographs as a way of indicating where cupboards will not be placed. This resulted in us realizing that art has its own particular presence and is essential in allowing you to fully personalize your space and express your own creativity and style. It makes perfect sense that we should be celebrating the fine arts as we continue to uphold the art of kitchen design. A kitchen should be ergonomic and functional, but the beauty of a kitchen
is important too.
 
In an effort to celebrate these two very different but perfectly complimentary art forms, we have collaborated with the sought after art gallery, Lizamore & Associates, to ensure that the best contemporary art by South African artists find their way into your kitchen. We’ll be featuring Lizamore’s artists on our pages and incorporate their work into our photography, enabling you to experience a perfectly selected artwork in your living space and supporting some of finest local artists.

During the COVID-19 Pandemic everyone worldwide has suffered; South Africa has faced an economic low while simultaneously dealing with hate crimes, poverty, and social injustices. In this new body of work Omogboye reflect's on this period and the hardships we have faced, then gazes into the future. Like many economic and socialistic pitfalls there will be a rise once again, there will be revival, there will be a hope, a rebirth. Throughout history every revival is lead by a younger generation, a generation that will not be worn by the past but will learn from it and move forward with optimism in the face of scrutiny. This new generation of light and hope will push forward and move us as a nation.

Using grey tonal values in his portraits, Omogboye will be acknowledging the past and by incorporating a light colour palate he symbolizes the future we are all striving for.
