New Paper cartoon strips always lighten the weightiness of the dark news that most publishers peddle and very few have mastered the art form of the newspaper cartoon in Nigeria like Mike Asukwo.
Asukwo, a senior editorial artist for ThisDay Newspapers, finally held an exhibition titled “Laughter In The Mirror” portraying a series of cartoons in his usual satirical style, making light but deep conversations about the socio-political landscape in Nigeria. The exhibition also brought to light the evolution of contemporary art in Africa.
The 3- day exhibition which held at the Red Door Gallery between the 21st- 23rd of September, involved a comic book launch as well as a “Wall of Laughter”
