This interview forms part of a series of features on artists who participated in our ‘Together for Our Planet’ initiative.
The ‘Together for Our Planet’ exhibition and publication is a collaboration between Occhi Arts and Entertainment and Phoenix FTA Limited, a UK-based sustainability strategy consultancy. Inspired by the UK Creative Earth Competition, Occhi Arts and Entertainment, and Phoenix FTA Limited invited artists from around the world to creatively engage with key topics of concern at the COP26 Climate Summit in Glasgow. The initiative provided artists with a renewed opportunity to visually express their views to world leaders and community stakeholders by producing 2D artwork. O Yemi Tubi is a Nigerian-born, USA-trained Artist, who resides in the UK. His paintings are influenced by the political and social climate of the world today. We had the pleasure to discuss his exhibition entry ‘Oil: Africans’ Wealth and Woes’.
