Ablade Glover's work, most expensive piece at Lagos Art Auction

Market Queens
Market Queens, oil on canvas by Ablade Glover, a Ghanaian foremost artist, was the most expensive artwork sold at Lagos Art Auction this year, at the price of 3,200,000.00 Naira.
People, oil on canvas by him was also sold at 2,800,000 Naira. Both works were produced in the year 2013.

He studied in Ghana, Britain and the United States of America. Professor Glover has a number of distinctions which shows his importance as an art educator and an
artist. After retiring from university work in 1994, he focused on his passion as a painter and started the most productive years of his artistic life, his mature period, with a steady production of highly acclaimed and intensely dynamic oil paintings, his work glows on constantly changing urban spaces or natural environments. 

Glover is easily recognised as a father of African Contemporary Art and international face of African Art. He believes the artist is a guardian of the traditions and culture of his society.
