Description “Eagles: When they walk, they stumble. They are not what one would call graceful. They were not designed to walk. They fly. And when they fly, oh, how they fly, so free, so graceful. They see from the sky what we never see.”
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.
