Ade Adekola’s work spans a variety of media: photography, installations, and interactive art. He is a Nigerian-born Architect turned contemporary artist. Self-taught, he has been making images since his early teens. Ade’s eye is influenced by a blend of visual languages that cut across multiple cultures. In his recent works he redirects his practice to creating contemporary representations from traditional and urban Nigerian culture. For example, he creates new expressions of traditional textiles; glittering gemstone photo mosaics from ethnographic images; large scale photomontages of urban dwellers; iconic blur images of festivals and optical kinetic pieces from urban photograms. His work is colourful and often uses overlapping images. His innovative compositions add new perspectives to African photography.
