Artist Adeola Balogun

Artist Balogun, with an uncanny penchant for material experimentation embarked on exploration of discarded rubber tyre as a material for his visual language. He has staged eight (8) solo exhibitions, several group shows, facilitated and participated in numerous workshops nationally, internationally. The recipient of the faculty award for Visual Experimentalist of The Decade (2011), has a number of commissioned projects within Nigeria and beyond to his credit. The largest body of Adeola Balogun’s works in private collection can be found with OYASAF, an art foundation, established by Prince Yemisi Shyllon. My works are reflective of either a spontaneous engagement or long contemplation on existential encounters which are usually transient but memorable.

Artist Balogun was admitted into Yaba College of Technology in 1988, to study General Art and Higher National Diploma and won the award for Best Student in Life-Drawing and Sculpture in 1993/94 set. After his National Youth Service in his alma-matter, he was immediately reabsorbed as academic staff in 1995. He thereafter, proceeded to University of Benin where he bagged Master of Fine Art (MFA, Sculpture) in 2004.

Adeola Musliu Balogun was born on 17th November, 1966 in Ota. He started his educational pursuit at Local Primary School Ikeja, in Lagos State, and completed his elementary education and post primary school at Saint James’ Primary School and Anglican Grammar School respectively in Ota, Ogun State, Nigeria.
