Anand-Carlsen: Chess Dead and Buried

Here is what Damilola Odusote, London-based artist, is to say about the Anand-Carlsen "match."

Well, you may not like it, but that is what we have still been seeing in Chennai so far. 

 

A success story verging on the mythological, Damilola was born to Nigerian parents, and fostered by a Romanian couple in Tilbury, Essex, a town which at the time was known for high levels of unemployment, poverty, crime and racism – a zeitgeist bleakly captured in the BAFTA-winning feature film ‘Fish Tank’. This adverse environment seems to have brought out the best in the family, which includes a poet, a lawyer, and the Hollywood actor Adewale Akinnouye Agbaje, best known for his roles in Lost and The Bourne Identity. And now, of course, we must add the up-and-coming talent, Damilola Odusote.
