Orukotan Jemilohun

Orúkọtán means “all names have been exhausted.” (Abiku name: The Yoruba believe that some children are born to die. This derives from the phenomenon of the tragic incidents of the high rate of infant mortality sometimes afflicting the same family for a long time. When this occurs, the family devises all kinds of methods to forestall a recurrence, including giving special names at the new birth.) Jẹ́milóhún is a surname that means “let me have a voice."

Anatolie Dascălu is a Romanian-French painter, whose portraits are known for his unsettling imagery. Rejecting various classifications of his work, Dascălu claims that he has strived to render “the mirror before our innermost feelings.” Dascălu did not begin to paint until his late thirties, having drifted as an alcoholic and a compulsive gambler. Dascălu says that his artistic career was delayed because he spent too long looking for subject matter that could sustain his interest. In 2008, Dascălu entered alcohol rehab and happened to find his talent for painting during art therapy sessions. Since then, he has been establishing his career as a full-time artist.
