Ade Adesina, born in Nigeria 1980, is currently a full time artist who lives in Aberdeen, Scotland. Previously studied Printmaking at Gray’s School of Art, Aberdeen.
“My work is a visual commentary around the ideas of ecology and our ever changing world. I am fascinated by how the human footprint is affecting our planet. I am a traditional printmaker, painter, and sculpture with a modern twist. I work with mostly woodcarving, linocut, etching, and oil. I like to make work that makes people reflect on the past, present, and the future. My practice is influenced by my experiences of travel and the imagery that I encounter. I enjoy researching and visualising the differences between countries both historically and culturally. My ideas come from places that I visit and I also source information from documentaries and current affairs.”
