A few more Nigerian Artists' Websites

My dream is that there will be over 1000 Nigerian artists website and/or blogs - functional ones o - by 1st October 2010 which is when we our dear country celebrates 50 years. Towards of the end of the first decade of the new millennium we need to achieve that critical mass. The Society of Nigerian Artists (SNA) needs to wake up and rise to this challenge. It is the statutory artists' body with a national reach and I believe that it must become an indispensable for any in-coming elected officials to articulate as one of their key points and top priorities a better understanding and better use of technology and new communications media for its constituency.

Current president Kolade Oshinowo has started the ball rolling with his own website and with that of SNA even though alot still needs to be done - at least they now have a page or two and will continue to build on it.

Artists' website I have received include Ayo Adewunmi and his project on turning Waste into creative object has a content rich but graphics heavy site at www.art-is-everywhere.com

Joe Musa and Kunle Filani also have their website but more work needs to done on them.

What do you think of artists from Africa participating in MundiaRt? Registrations are open and are free.
In the second edition, we had Angolans doing a performance during the opening.
