Art is a reflection of society and artists often promote this relationship between society and Arts through their works creating art that can identify with their ethnic backgrounds. Unlike these artists who go back to their roots, some contemporary artists like Ben Osaghae prefer to focus on the present. Having left his mark in Nigerian Art History, Ben was not afraid of questioning and deviating from the norm. His work “Prayer Warriors 2” which is part of the Yemisi Shyllon Museum of Art’s collection expresses his ideas as an artist.
