Bridgit Etbon celebrates graduation: A large group of Ghanaians and well-wishers gathered at Norsborg centrum to celebrate the graduation of Bridgit Etbon. It was a very religious ceremony dubbed "To God Be the Glory" and was, indeed, a thanksgiving ceremony rather than the usual Ghanaian party of merry making and dancing. That was there too but emphasis was placed on the gratitude showed go the almighty. This was expressed in several languages including Serbo-Croatian and Yoruba. The ocassion also marked the 23rd birthday of Bridgit. This called for two cakes - a birthday one and a graduation one. The proud parents were on hand to help her cut the cakes. There was a lot of good food on the day too. For once, Ghanaians arrived in time for this celebration. Bridgit graduated with an MSc in Pharmacology and Forensic Siences from Bradford University in the UK. She is currently a doctoral student at Leeds University, also in the UK.

Young Nigerian born female artist makes it big in the US: Njideka Akunyil Crosby, a young artist based in Los Angeles, is currently the talk of the art world. Dozens of wealthy collectors want to buy her latest works, yet none is for sale—at least, not to private individuals. Ms Crosby’s first European solo show will open at the Victoria Miro Gallery in London on October 4th, the week that Frieze Art Fair starts. Now 33, she moved from Nigeria to America at the age of 16. Her “Afropolitan” identity has forged a highly distinctive visual style. She works mostly on paper, creating large-scale interiors that combine serene human figures with dense areas of collage and image-transfer that subversively evoke her Nigerian heritage. “Her paintings have a distinct vocabulary,” says Glenn Scott Wright, a director at Victoria Miro, which represents Ms Crosby. “You can go around an art fair with 10,000 works and you would know hers immediately.” Read the rest...   Crosby
