TRAVEL. URBAN ART. LIFESTYLE CHOICES. SHABBYCHIC. SPLASHART

Travel, urban lifestyle, art , particularly visual arts from around the world, music showcasing the growing urban trends, shabby-chic culture, vintage items and restoration of old wooden items, have been my major keen interests and invariably have influenced my lifestyle choices.

Rummaging through the back streets and high street shops of cities and villages I visit is like an adventure, a treasure hunt, picking up unique and historical items, items that tell a story of the people and their culture and how these objects have influenced their lifestyle choices within their communities.
Most of the items I collect are kept as memorabilia, sold off to galleries and shops in London. My European collectors also have the opportunity to grab some of these, if they are so lucky!
I enjoy working with upcoming artists from around the world, especially African talents, showcasing their unique designs and products in pop-up locations in London and Europe.
We are developing our brand of Splash-Art products which will be available for general purchase in due course, so keep an eye out!!

Sharing our adventures, artworks and discussing lifestyle tips, we hope we can positively help re-brand lifestyles and engage minds for a more balanced and rewarding life.

The Cultural Richness of the Native Indians of America

The Native Indians are undoubtedly one of the most culturally-rich people of the world. I have always been fascinated by stories of how the Indians who inhabited America fought long-drawn wars with their new settlers, the Europeans, who came and made a home for themselves in the lands the Indians recognised as their ancestral home …

“Life imitates Art far more than Art imitates Life”

Oscar Wilde, in his essay titled ‘The Decay of Lying – An Observation’, published in 1891, suggested that “Life imitates Art far more than Art imitates Life”. This is so true given that our very existence in its social context is a representation of the complex relationship between us and nature. Our lives are interwoven …

Budapest ~ the Pearl of the Danube

Once I sat with a friend from Hungary over lunch. We got talking about places and cities to visit in our lifetime. Being from Africa, I told him of the cultural richness of Africa, and more specifically, about the Ohafia people of Eastern Nigeria from where I originate. He listened to my stories of warriors, …

ART, TRAVEL & LIFESTYLE

Art. Crafts. Objet d’Art

Sourcing unique art pieces that accentuate any home and give a visual interpretation of the individuality of people is my passion. Not only does it meet the very complex demands of today’s uber-trendy gents and ladies, I enjoy the thrills and excitement of every new find.

From Original Paintings, which include Oil, Watercolour and Acrylic paintings, to quality Custom prints, to hand-crafted shabby chic products through to other Wooden products, Antiques and Vintage items, I love to collect them all.

Travelling has always been a passion I share with millions of folks out there.

It is refreshing, relaxing, creates a release, just like a therapy.

I love the feel of nature. Sometimes escape to a ‘wilderness’ rejuvenates. Standing up a hill in Abuja, Nigeria.

Wellbeing ~ Smooties n Healthy Drinks

A major part of the urban trend is keeping fit, making sure you get yourself in a tip- top shape.

The challenges of urban living makes life tedious at times. The hustling and bustling of fast pace life, work and family, means that sometimes we forget to look after our bodies. We are swept up with dealing with everyday issues and oftentimes do not take stock of our diets and what we drink.

Part of my daily routine is making smoothies from fresh vegetables, herbs, fruits and seeds.

Patrick adefisayo

From Office Ties to Paints & Brushes

When in 2002 Adefisayo picked up his brush, canvas and paint and started painting, he never knew he was unleashing a passion that had been buried for more than three decades.
Since that first stroke, Adefisayo has never looked back.
His works have developed a uniqueness he also finds astonishing, as though he was looking at someone else’s work, another being far removed from himself.
Once I remember describing to him what I thought. I said, “Once you handle your brush and dip the tip into your oil paint, do you feel you are suddenly transported like a bullet to a totally different realm and in your own world, your own space, alien from the here and now?” His response was, ‘That’s about right’.
Adefisayo is humble and unassuming and very passionate about African concepts and traditions.
His works will be on display on our site and available for purchase soon.
