Abisola Gbadamosi NIgerian, b. 1995

Abisola Kuburat Gbadamosi is a visual artist born in 1995 in Nigeria. Originally from Ibadan, Oyo state she grew up spending the majority of her formative years between Lagos and London. Gbadamosi’s work focuses on the interplay between light and colour, spirituality, everyday life and loss. Having experienced the loss of both her parents at a relatively young age she turned to art as a form of therapy, a way of processing her innermost thoughts and working through conflicting emotions which she struggled to vocalise. The use of watercolour gives her works a distinct and noticeable style which she uses to create ethereal portraits, successfully translating her different states of consciousness.
