If you’ve never been to a Baba Shabu exhibition, be sure to plan to spend some time there when you go. It’s a chance to enjoy while invigorating your spirit. Just looking slowly and peacefully, your eyes begin to see more and more amazing textures, layers and dynamic shapes bounding across the canvas exciting the imagination. When you carry a piece home with you, this process goes on for years to come – discovering more and more beauty.
Liberia has a miraculous effect on Baba. At 87 years his eyes allow him to see balances, colors and dimensions that show his love and appreciation for his homeland and environment. He can see the smallest speck on his canvas and not see a full grown man standing nearby who came to greet him.
As Baba Shabu’s mobility slows down, his creativity accelerates. “Beauty, Balance, and Strength of the Arc,” his new exhibition, opens at Hotel Provident Gallery on December 16. Baba’s creative spirit was active as soon as he saw the hotel’s arched entrances. And the exhibition was born!
Don’t miss this chance to see the work and meet our “old man of the arts” for yourself.
