Banjoko presents multidimensional art at AMIAF 2023

Festival Announcement

Congratulations to Babatundé Banjoko an AMIAF Awardee.
We are pleased to announce FRANCE-based designer Babatunde Banjoko, one of the designers of Fela’s album covers, publicity materials and band costumes, will celebrate Afrobeat uniquely.

He's art in illustration and branding traverses Africa and has been confirmed as one of the participating artists and he will be receiving an Afrobeats award for his contribution to the Afrobeats culture at the 2023 ArtMiabo International Art Festival (AMIAF) themed ‘Art of Afrobeats’. Juxtaposition of fine art and performance art exhibition.
The festival from April 27th to May 1st at Ebonylife Place, Victoria Island, Lagos, is an unusual visual arts festival focusing on the trajectory of the Afrobeat music genre.
One of those inspired by the late maverick, Banjoko disclosed that he is “bringing into the ‘Arts of Afrobeat’ festival, the narrative years of design collaboration with the late Fela Kuti, who was the precursor of the genre that has since gone international.”
He added that whatever glory is being celebrated currently about Afrobeats, the genre’s trajectory can’t be denied, which “gave birth and credence to the Afrobeats derivation. This is factual.”
For example, Banjoko recalled how he brought his art skills into working with Fela. “Afrobeat famous compositions and moods are incorporated into album covers, designed with mixed mediums of expression.”
He also explained how Afrobeat has influenced what he described as his “dynamic approaches in rendering some of Fela’s record covers, newspaper adverts, concert posters, costume design for the lady dancers and patterns on some of the Afrobeat legend’s costumes and shoes.”
We are indeed pleased to have babatunde at the festival as he will not only be part of the narrative, he will be exhibiting his current Art portfolio read the full article about babatunde use the link below
