Lanre Adefioye, Toronto Member Since July 2010 Artist Statement “My art is inspiration and philosophical”. My past present and future inspire me in the kind of art that I do. My art is therapeutic; it opens the mind to new possibilities, creates energy and provides comfort to the soul. My art allows the mind to escape sending the individual on a healing journey into the painting. Colours stimulates the mind more than we know, in creating my art pieces I always like to use subtle tonal harmonious colour variations, not just only to encourage a calm and contemplative mood but to evoke the healing power.
I work with acrylic paint because I could paint on a particular spot many times in no time.
My style is a fusion of artistic techniques of Pop Art with compositional aspect of Cubism, which I describe as Perfect and Imperfect art.
It is amazing when surrounded with harmonious sweeping lines images that speak to the conscious mind in the Desert, Rainfall and Sunshine, I want my viewers to find joy, peace and most of all I want to heal the World with my Art.
