ADESHINA ADEMOLO

Ademola Adeshina hails from Osun State in western Nigeria. He studied general art in The Polythecnic, Ibadan, and was later trained as a textile designer at Yaba College of Technology, Lagos. He is a self thought painter. He became a full time studio artist in 1999. Beholding his diverse styles of painting, one could deduce that Adeshina's mind is full of unending ideas, and his unquenchable desire to explore these ideas makes him delve into painting in different styles.  

He has been experimenting on how to strike a balance between abstraction and other forms of art, which over the years has produced the harvest of a particular style of painting that is now identified as being unique to him. He adopted pointillism, simplification and dematerializaion of human forms, suffused with decorative patterns and symbols drawn across the global space.

"The greatest challenge of a man is to stand before himself. Art is the reality expressions of unspoken words."
