|A Painting titled Aka Jehovah II by Zinno Orara|
Through out the period of the battle of Adaora against breast cancer, her husband, Orara nearly "shut down" his studio for almost seven years. Died in 2014, Adaora who left behind four children of two boys and girls is being celebrated by Zinno as Life's Journey, the artist's solo art exhibition, showing from November 25 - December 4, 2017 at Terra Kulture, Victoria Island, Lagos.
Properties sold, drugs worth N197,000 per week were bought, among severalefforts to rescue Adaora from cancer, Orara recalled ahead of the exhinition's opening. However, there appeared to be something for Orara to be joyful over. "Two of our children have graduated after my wife's death."
In paintings such as 'Thoughts Of You' 2017; 'Eyes of Faith', 'Aka Jehovah ll' 2016, 'Strength of Unity' and 'Should be in School' among others, there are so much the artist has to share.
In May this year, Orara made his major group exhibition since the death of his wife. It was the debut edition of The Content art exhibition, curated by Onabanjo, at Adam&Eve, GRA, Ikeja, Lagos.
