Occula - Better Than Ever: Art Dubai 2015


"... Other galleries opted for solo presentations, or more focused pairings. These included Moscow’s Gallery Iragui, who showed Pavel Pepperstein; Lagos’s Art Twenty One, which highlighted the work of Olu Amoda and Gerard Quenum;Sanatorium, with a booth devoted to the remarkable cityscapes and studies rendered in watercolour on paper by Ahmet Dogu Ipek; and Canvas Gallery, who showed a series of paintings by Ayaz Jokhio depicting the backs of the heads of many a celebrity figure, from Warhol to Michael Jackson. The latter pointed to the only discernable trend at the fair: hair works, as seen at Raster and Wentrup, too."
