Joshua John Oyedemi and Ochigbo Best Simon
Best Ochigbo and John Oyedemi’s idiomatic reflections on their creative oeuvre derive from the search for distinct aesthetic patterns that epitomize their individualistic expression. Artists over the centuries were inspired to evolved creativity that address each epoch. Today there are several outcry against the effect of climate change in varied perspectives. Hence the need to add our voices through the lens of our artistic altruistic visualization in non-representational aesthetic idioms. Efforts by individuals through protests, media hues and policies that are left unimplemented creates a yawning gap on the issue of climate change. This paper’s objectives include: revealing the philosophy and techniques of the two artists, and the creation of wholly abstract visual relationships of a planet on edge. The methodology employed is the practice based studio approach. The findings reveals that the works explored the eco-system and the effect of climate change on our planet. Both artists have contributed their visual nuances as contribution to point to climate action. The paintings hold a place in an art historical paradigm as art communicates a universal language.it is recommended that every effort to mitigate the climate change effect should be put in place.
