Adeola Balogun

 

Born in 1966 in Ogun State, Adeola Balogun is one of the most exciting sculptors working in Nigeria today. He belongs to an exceptional generation of artists firmly establishing themselves on the Lagos exhibition circuit with their embrace of unconventional media and techniques, and their interrogation of the larger society. Fashioned out of rubber tyres , steel and discarded mechanical parts, Balogun’s work continues to spark interest. Coupled with a successful career as a lecturer in sculpture at the prestigious Yaba College of Technology, Balogun holds an eminent place among Nigerian contemporary artists.
