'Since 2009, Ed Cross Fine Art has focused its gaze on the art of the African diaspora. One of its most championed, and beloved, artists, Abe Odedina, is the gallery’s sole exhibitor for the London Art Fair. It is easy to see why. Deceptively simple, each bold work astutely plays with the traditions of African art and its complex mythologies. Vivid, layered and bubbling with symbolic meaning, Odedina’s acrylic on plywood pieces are a rich feast that tell a hugely entertaining story when displayed together in this way.'
