2 September 2022

A portrait of Professor Olivette Otele is currently on display as part of Timeless Visions, an exhibition being held between 1-30 September at the Zari Gallery, London. 

Olivette Otele Portrait

The portrait by artist and Emeritus Professor at Bath Spa University, Gavin Cologne-Brookes, depicts two portraits of Professor Otele, 17 years apart, in one image. 

In reaction to the inclusion of the portrait in the Timeless Visions exhibition, Professor Olivette Otele said: 

“To have two portraits that are 17 years apart and that include my son in one beautiful piece, speaks to the outstanding talent of the artist. It feels great to feature on such a prestigious wall of fame which includes names such Bruce Springsteeen, William Stryron, Arthur Miller and Joyce Carol Oates at the Zari Gallery.”

The Timeless Visions exhibition is on display now until 30 September at the Zari Gallery, 73 Newman Street, London.
