Viewing Jadé Fadojutimi: Can we see the colour green because we have a name for it?

Jadé Fadojutimi has taken the art world by storm. She’s only 29 yet her energetic paintings combining abstract and figurative elements have already been picked up by the Tate and sold for over one million at auction. Now she’s the subject of a major solo show at the Hepworth Wakefield in Yorkshire.

Curated by Andrew Bonacina, it includes new works made in response to the scale and architectural qualities of the galleries as well as a selection of Fadojutimi’s drawings and sketchbooks. Expect vibrant compositions that bubble with untrammelled energy and reference a range of sources, from the artist’s own identity to the social and cultural environments that have shaped her distinctive vision.

It’s a chance to see Fadojutimi’s work alongside celebrated pieces from the Hepworth Wakefield’s outstanding Modern British art collection. You’ll come away with a new appreciation of her prodigious talent. Book your train tickets now.
