We are very proud to announce that Njogu Touray, one of The Gambia's most renowned artists, is exhibiting his latest collection at Gaya Art Cafe. The main collection is called 'Invisible Women' and derives from Njogu's observations of the role women play in society and how they are virtually invisible. Gambian society involves household members spending a lot of time outside their compounds, where children play and men sit around talking, drinking ataya. Women are often unseen as they are busy cooking, cleaning, caring for young children and other duties performed inside the compound or village.
Njogu's paintings show the different roles that women play and while the women are invisible they are represented through symbols in the artwork.
