Sculptor Seeks More Funding For Visual Arts
« on: July 03, 2013, 11:36:30 AM »
Mrs Favour Anamateze, a sculptor at the exhibition of the Greek Amazon Artists, has appealed to public and private organisations to fund the visual arts.
 Anamateze made the appeal in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) at an Abuja.
 She said that visual arts, if properly harnessed, would foster development and become a money spinner for the nation.
 According to her, visual arts are very important in regenerating individual’s social-cultural and mental well being.
 “It is heartwarming when you see talents who are useful in reshaping the life and ways of a particular culture.
 “ It is always essential for an artist to sit down, think and imagine what will be done to reshape another person’s life.
 “But from what is going on in our society, the environment is not conducive for the artists to thrive on what to do.
 “ Artists are faced with some challenges, ranging from finance, to space and the environment.
 “It is therefore important for them to be recognised, funded and taken to the next level for their impact to really be visible,’’ she said.
 Anamateze added that visual art had created a window for the performing and photo artists in expressing their needs and challenges.
 She said that the visual arts had gone digital with the usage of computer in replacement of the traditional tools and thus, required more funding.
 She, therefore, called for assistance from Nigerians to support the works of visual artists.
 NAN reports that the exhibition with the theme, “ Wealth of the Island’’, focused on paintings, sculptures and textiles works of five Abuja based artists.
 The artists whose works were showcased are Pamela Cyril-Egware, Favour Anamaleze, Ayakurai Ekpebu, Tessy Asiemo and Klaranze Okhide. (NAN)
