Jimoh Buraimoh, 
Nigeria b.1943 -

Untitled, 1969; 

oil and beads on panel, signed and dated lower left 'Burainmoh 1969', 61 x 61 cm 

Chief Jimoh Buraimoh is one of the most influential artists to emerge from the 1960's experimental workshops known as the Osogbo School of Art. The artist's bead paintings are his most famous works, and are inspired by the Yoruba tradition of incorporating beadwork designs into ceremonial fabrics and beaded crowns. In 1967 the Goethe Institute in Lagos organised Buraimoh's first exhibition of bead paintings, and since then he has exhibited his work internationally.
