This exhibition by Robert Akotia contains paintings that showcase landscapes and different aspects of life in Africa and United States as seen through the eyes of an artist with an international perspective. Special attention is paid to New York - the center of the rhythm of modern life and cultures. These paintings, with their vivid brush strokes and layers, are a toast to the celebration of color that captures the modern active trends of life today.
