B. Anele: Burning the Candle at Both Ends and Also the Middle

 "The day mother nature spit into my mouth. Finding peace within existence through a magnified lens of perception"  
B. Anele Art Residency 
B. Anele is a Los Angeles based Transdisciplinary artist. Delving into imaginative topography, they transform familiar symbolism and commonplace objects into provocative prototypes. An organic nature encompasses the work in it's entirety concerning materials/mediums and essence. Inherently complex, their perspective is filtered through Nigerian roots, blackness, and queerness. Simultaneously haphazard and considerate, their body of work is the result of producing physical evidence from a metaphysical exploration of existence. Working in an uninhibited range of mediums from performances involving 30 bananas and a jug of water to 10 foot long hypnotic paintings, B. explores their own progressive narrative within each facet of their work in ambitious effort to proliferate acquisition of broadened consciousness. B. Anele has exhibited work in group and solo shows in Houston, Austin, Oakland, Los Angeles, Portland, and New York City.
