Peju Alatise (Nigeria, 1975) incorporates a variety of non-traditional materials in producing his sculptures, paintings, and ceramics. His bad moods are a delight to take in; there's a clear, alien sense of humor in his methods of parsing through gender dynamics, politics, and race. The prevailing message is an invitation to see humanity's social issues for their ridiculousness. He has been exhibited in such galleries as Somerset House, London (2014); Art Twenty-One, Lagos (2013): Nike Art Gallery (2012).
