Anthony Okello ‘Orders from Above’


African Girl London


I visited the ‘POP UP AFRICA II’ exhibiton as the GAFRA and I was mesmerized by Anthony Okello’s oil on canvas painting ‘Orders from Above’. There is something about this painting that likens it to Michelangelo’s ‘Last Judgement’. The painting stretches from floor to ceiling in size which leaves you feeling haunted and enchanted at the same time; it is as if your mortal sensibilities are transformed as you behold the exhibited, spiritual process of death.

Be sure to check out the Gallery of African Art is you have any interest in good contemporary art.
