Multi-talented artist and photographer, Lakin Ogunbanwo with the support of Moet & Chandon on 3rd December, 2014 held a one-day solo art exhibition titled - ’12: 03’.
The exhibition took place at A Whitespace Lagos. ’12:03’ was titled after the 3rd of December, which marked a significant day in the life of the photographer. The well-styled exhibition is the first of its kind.
