Abi Adeyemi



My artwork is organic - constantly evolving with flow of vibrant energy through colour and texture.

Every time I start on an abstract "acrylic", I often have no concept of what the painting itself would or should be. I deduce that one of my stronger attributes as an artist, is my creative ability to blend a diverse range of media using undertones of music and the turbulence of life experiences.

I feel a very strong "force" taking over during the act of creation. I am guided through my paintings like a journey. This interactive process between myself, my brush, the canvas and the paint is my responsibility as an artist.

The concept of my work is usually a infusion of moods and elements . My paintings are vivid, full of life and colour, because this is what I am. They are a reflection of my inner self, respect for the life I lead and treasure.

Titles are usually instantaneous and more often infer a correlation between the piece and a snapshot of life at that moment.

Each painting has a message, but surely there are more messages possible than mine, leaving it open to the contemplation of all.

My work is not prescriptive because I have my own influences and this can only serve to inspire me more. Free will is a prerequisite for my work.

My "acrylics" are in different sizes and are all extremely marketable depending on your taste and statement.

My "acrylics" - merely all abstract expressionist pieces - are "my statement",

they are "my will",

they are "me".
