Who? What? Why?


I post as ‘colonnadequiet’ but my name is Olivia Nwabali and I’m a twenty-something Londoner currently studying Classics and English literature at the University of Leeds.

Although I’m often quiet about the things which I love – literature, art, ancient history, music, languages – they are an endless source of curiosity, joy and beauty in my life.

This blog, The Gallery, is dedicated to these often silent and lonely pleasures.

I hope you enjoy your visit!
