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.
More of his works will be on display on our site and available for purchase soon.
