Tunji Adeniyi-Jones explores the visual motifs and mythologies from ancient West African art through his high-gloss paintings imbued with lyrical grace and effortless movement. Drawing inspiration from the aesthetic traditions from ancient West African Kingdoms, specifically the deities of the Yoruba (orisha), Adeniyi-Jones channels the spiritual undercurrent significant to these cultures via arrestingly beautiful painted characters who fill the entirety of the canvas, enfolded in saturated transportive hues.
His print edition, Blue Dancer, is based on the painting of the same name that was featured in his 2018 solo exhibition at Nicelle Beauchene. A voluptuous figure is suspended in space, time, composition; navigating through a rich azure color field with an acrobatic otherworldly grace reminiscent of the orisha.
Framing option is white or black painted wood, 7/8” wide flat face and 7/8” deep, with UV acrylic glass.
