Jefferson Say Gbatu

Jefferson Say Gbatu (known as Say) has immersed himself into the world of highly detailed paintings. His perception of the world, or rather the world’s perception toward him, is that of a misplaced object. Say’s work is based on the juxtaposition of contrasting elements.  Aside from being visually appealing, the goal of the work is to question the interaction of the elements within the painting, the advantages and the drawbacks of their union and the new abilities or adaptations that can be brought about from their unlikely contact.
