The Gallery of African Art marked its official launch in London's Mayfair with WordPlay, a solo exhibition by Ethiopian artist Wosene Worke Kosrof. Curated by Mesai Haileleul and Raku Sile, guests at the private view were treated to 16 new and recent large-scale paintings by the artist - in what is his first major show in the UK in over 10 years. Drawing inspiration from his native tongue of Amharic, Wosene's bold and dynamic compositions really catch the imagination. Exhibition ends 26th July 2013.
