Print Email

The authorities of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, have  praised the sterling effort of one of the graduating students in the Department of Fine and Applied Arts, Mr. Ponmile Pelumi, who made a rather unusual portrait of the President of Federal Republic, Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR, as his project work, using pieces of clothes.

The commendation which came through Dean, Division of Students’ Affairs, Professor Isiaka Aransi, glowingly described the art work titled, “The Emperor’s New Clothes” as a unique oil on canvas painting done without using a single colour, but pieces of clothes.

“PP, as fondly called by friends, has devised how to solve a particular problem through his artwork executed with wastes from tailors’ workshops”, the Dean noted.
