Becoming the first RSA New Contemporary to be elected a Royal Scottish Academician in 2017 and benefitting from several RSA awards and residencies, Ade Adesina’s extraordinary success has been encouraged and recognised by the academy throughout his career so far. Aurora will be Adesina’s first solo exhibition in the RSA Academicians’ Gallery. Focusing on the effects of climate change, deforestation and energy consumption, Adesina’s ecologically-minded, monumental linocuts, woodcuts and etchings demonstrate the limits to which his chosen media can be pushed. He combines objects, places and scenes from his African heritage, British culture and those encountered whilst travelling into visually-immersive landscapes which come together with the grandeur and impact of history painting. Born in Nigeria in 1980, Adesina studied at Gray’s School of Art (2008-12), Aberdeen, and continues to live and work in the city.
