PHOTO: Alara, Ajero, and Orangun painting drawn by Olaolu Slawn sold to racist for £31,750 at biggest auction market in the UK

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Alara, Ajero, and Orangun painting drawn by Olaolu Slawn sold to racist for £31,750 at biggest auction market in the UK.

The piece has been criticised for promoting racist tropes and catering to a Western caricature of people of African descent.

The painting features three hideous-looking monkeys with massive lips named Alara, Ajero, and Orangun. Depicting black people with exaggerated facial features or as monkeys in Western media has for long been frowned upon as a racist dehumanisation.

But after old posts by Slawn on X (formerly Twitter) resurfaced critics say that the tropes depicted in the painting are intended to dehumanise.

However, the art itself, leaves me with mixed feelings. At first sight, I'll hardly want to associate the images with humans. On the other hand, there is always a story to every art. Hopefully, this art has a story that clears the obvious bad taste that comes at first glance
