Nigerian Artist Modupeola Fadugba’s Works Cover Harper’s Bazaar Art’s March Issue

Another testament to Nigeria’s burgeoning art scene, Modupeola Fadugba‘s works – not one but two! – will be gracing the covers of the March issue of Harper’s Bazaar Art.

Fadugba’s paintings, acrylic, ink and pencil on burned paper, will be the first ever by an African artist to feature on the cover of the magazine.

Fadugba shared the news on her Instagram, writing:

Modupeola’s swimmer is as much representative of the rising African art scene as it a philosophical statement on the importance of never giving up. “Together, we can go farther, at the expense of going faster,” says the artist.
