Israel Agboola Oladapo paints to show people how he feels and understands that the world is a better place together. He paints to empower women and men and to tell their stories all over the globe. He speaks for the voiceless with his works, because he knows with art, he can let the world hear them out. “We all have a lot to say to the world.” So, he uses his work as a channel for everyone to connect and understand that we need each other. In the body of works he will be showing with Allouche gallery, Israel puts all his truth in the works, to connect us and know we are more than who we think we are.
