Artist Arinze Stanley Delves Into the World of the Paranormal

The Editors

 

Downtown Los Angeles’s Corey Helford Gallery is currently exhibiting a solo show with world-renowned Nigerian painter Arinze Stanley, entitled Paranormal Portraits, in Gallery 2.

Inspired by his personal experiences growing up in Africa and the current cultural and political state of society, Stanley is driven to create drawings that trigger an emotional connection between the viewers and his artworks. Using his works as a form of social and political activism, Stanley hopes to use his art to speak for those who can’t speak for themselves.

Regarding his new series, Stanley says, “My art is born out of the zeal for perfection both in skill, expression, and devotion to create positive changes in the world. I draw inspiration from life experiences and basically everything that sparks a feeling of necessity. I find myself spending countless hours working on an artwork to stimulate deep and strong emotions, in order to connect more intimately with my viewers. Most times, it’s almost like I lose control of my pencils and the art flows through me to the paper. I work with my Principle of the Three P's: Patience, Practice, and Persistence. These have guided me over the years towards perfecting my craft.”

 

Arinze Stanley's 'Paranormal Portraits' exhibit is on display through November 7th.  For more information, visit Corey Helford Gallery.
