Ade Adesina was born in Nigeria in 1980, graduated with a BA (Hons) in Printmaking from Gray’s School of Art, 2011.
‘I am fascinated by how the human footprint is affecting our planet. Our world is full of wonderful landscapes and I wish to highlight the continual damage caused through things such as deforestation, the politics of energy consumption and endangered wild species. I am a traditional printmaker, painter and sculptor; I work mostly with woodcarving, linocut etching and oil paint. I combine my African cultural roots with my British ones; producing work that encourages people to reflect on themselves and their histories.’ Ade Adesina.
