Portfolio of Art and Literature
Portfolio of Art and Literature, is a compendium of pictures and extracts of literary works by Bruce Onobrakpeya. The artworks in the portfolio are illustrations or visual interpretations of poems, short stories and folk songs by various African authors mainly of Nigerian descent, as well as some of his writings and translations. These illustrations are important ways of reaching a wider audience through portfolio sets that can be circulated like books, but have the added advantage of having detachable contents that can be taken out of the cases and exhibited on walls like free standing pictures especially for use for art collectors, museums and libraries.
Art collectors, bibliophiles, the reading public including children will find the compendium educational and entertaining, and more importantly would serve them as indispensable pictorial and visual representation of works of literary giants like Wole Soyinka, Chinua Achebe, Cyprian Ekwensi and Tanure Ojaide who are a few of the writers, whose works have been very successfully illustrated by the artist Prof. Bruce Onobrakpeya.
The portfolio of Art and Literature has a limited edition of just 75 copies, and covers a period of works done by the artist from 1960 to date.
