1.1 Background of the study

The development art in Fine Arts Departments, Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria has a long history. It was first transferred from the Ibadan branch of the Nigerian College of Arts, Science and Technology in 19551. It was the first Department of Fine Art in Nigeria 2.

 

There  were  only  three  senior  members  of  staff,  Mr.  &  Mrs. Baker, British National and Clara Ngbodaga a Nigerian who was an art graduate of London University3. The Fine Art Department of the Nigerian College of Arts Science and Technology, Zaria admitted it first batch of diploma students who were seventeen 4. 


The  students  were  taught  painting,  sculpture,  graphics  and commercial  design  barely  two  years  after  its  transfer  from Ibadan. In 1957/58 the department had, through its programmes gained international acclaim and quickly received affiliation first with the Slade School of Arts and later the Goldsmiths School of Arts both of the University of London5. 


Only six of the students admitted graduated with Diploma in Fine Arts in June 1959-one in painting; T. A. Fasuyi, two in sculpture; G.M Eneremadu and C.C  Ihejiahi  and  three  in  graphics  and  commercial  design namely S.O. Fasuyi, J. A. Nkobi, S. I. Wangboje6. In 1960, four students   graduated   in   painting   and   four graphics   and commercial  design,  J.  A.  Agbabiaka,   Y.   A  Grillo, W.  A Olaosebikan, C. O. Talabi; for Graphic and Commercial Design; J. A. Adeka, P. O. Erese, J. K. Oyewole, J. N. Thomas. In the same  year,  most  students  took  part  in  the  independence exhibition where their works were for the first time brought to the notice of the Nigerian public.


In October 1961, the Ahmadu Bello University was established, taking over the Fine Arts Department from the former Nigerian College of Art, Science and Technology, Zaria.



From 1959 to date over One Thousand Students have graduated from the Fine Arts Department Zaria with either a Certificate, Diploma, Bachelors Degree, Masters of Art Degree in Art History or Education, Master of Fine Arts Degree (M.F.A) in Sculpture and Painting or Masters and Doctorate Degree in Art Education and  Art History. Such graduates  have been  a source of pride to the institution, with honours for themselves and their Alma Mater9. Some of the Masterpieces at the National Gallery of Art Lagos have added to their reputation. Their works adorn leading museums, galleries, private and public institutions like hotels, banks, conference halls and churches.


For example, Solomon Irein Wangboje is known severally for his prints, “the desert journey”, “the Romance of the head load” 1 and  2;  Yusuf  Grillo  is  known  for  his  paintings,  “the  Moslem women”, “Sultan Bello Mural” and Ten Virgins Stain Glass at N.

Okekechukwu  Odita’s  Njikoka  series  are  examples  of  the statement the artist made on the Nigerian civil war of 1967-69, he interprets it as unity and strength. In this work attention is drawn to unity as well as benevolent acts between Igbo, Yoruba, Hausa and Fulani speaking ethnic groups of Nigeria.
