Kip Omolade | Diovadiova @ Jonathan LeVine Projects

 Jonathan LeVine Projects presents Diovadiova Chrome, a solo exhibition by New Jersey-based artist Kip Omolade for his debut solo show at the gallery.

Diovadiova Chrome (a name fabricated by the artist by combing dio (god) and diva (goddess)) features hyperreal oil paintings of chrome protrait sculptures against a solid brightly colored backgrouned. Omolade illustrates the intricacies of the human face while detailing a reflected environment on the chrome faces. In this portrait series, Omolade initially sought to analyze the relationship between celebrities and deities. However, the project eventually became a psychological investigation of immortality, beauty, luxury, and the invisible masks that veil society.
