About the artist Adebisi Ganiu

ARTIST BIO Adebisi Ganiu (b.1998) in Idimu, Lagos, Nigeria, is an emerging abstract expressionist. He developed a skill in painting landscapes in high school. Graduating from high school, he started as a realism pencil artist, working from 2015 to 2018 before he transitioned to abstract art. Following his transformation from realism to abstract art, Adebisi Ganiu says, “Abstract art allows me to escape from the known reality to a more profound one” now working as a contemporary abstract artist/ action painter, his works revolve around the expression of anger, pain, excitement, and other emotions also to pass cryptic messages to his viewers. The motivation behind his works is the liberation from precepts or guidelines in the art-making process. He works from his studio in Ewekoro, Ogun State, Nigeria, using acrylic and charcoal on both paper and canvas. He draws his inspiration from his daily emotion, influenced by Willem De Kooning, Helen Frankenthaler, and Jason Pollock. He enjoys the creative process of every piece he has made and the growth and healing that comes with them.
