The first edition of “Crossroad will feature Foxi Von Riga, an international artist living in Belgium.
Foxi Von Riga taps into the flow of life to create her art, which is sensual and exuberant, and full of color. Foxi is enchanted by color – its energy, its role and influence on our lives sometimes too mystical to explain through science and logic. She portrays deeply spiritual aspects of our existence through metaphors and archetypal images of familiar objects – such as fruit and flowers – and surrounds them by intricate shapes, characteristic of her unique style.
The opening event of Crossroad by Ola-Dele Kuku Projects will be held in the heart of Brussels, at the Baki Art Gallery, Rue des Bouchers 61, 1000 Brussels, just next to the Galerie de La Reine. Tha exhibition is scheduled to open on April 23, 2015 from 18.00 until 21.00. Visitors of this first edition will be able to discover a selection of Foxi Von Riga’s recent paintings, as well as Ola-Dele Kuku’s built images from different series of his drawings.
