S.F. International Folk Art III: Fabric artist.

Here are a few of the artist from Nigeria. The one with the yellow name tag is Gasali Adeyemo and this was his 7th visit to the Folk Art Market. As you can see he is wearing an outfit made from the fabrics that he makes. The patterns he creates are just amazing.

Colorful. (You probably mean Nigeria). I know a Nigerian Prince. His daughter is a pretty good belly dancer.

What a great portrait. Love all those shades of blue. Perhaps he could write a book called "Fifty Shades of Blue"? ;-)

Blue seems to be the color of choice among these men! Would be interesting to know what influences the designs?

Would these clothes be considered casual in their country? If so, what would formal look like? Great, Randy, now I'm all full of questions. :)
