Samuel Adebuga, an Ohio based artist draws from a successful career in graphic design and editorial illustration experience.
My paintings are largely autobiographical, an acute observation of constant transformation of everything that life dictates in society at large. The process is self-revealing. I used it to investigate, explore, manipulate and ultimately celebrate the way in which I see, in which we perceive things. This becomes an uninterrupted exchange of one’s thought – a window to the world.
My journey begins with feeling, then thought, shape and color follow with the harmony between texture and gesture of complex interaction to attain my purpose. The combination of painterly, conceptual and poetic maneuvering is what shapes my process.
The juxtaposed and detailing of the subject while remaining figurative and expressive conceptual. Each painting is unique just as each viewer’s experience of it unique. My testament of recollection in the contemporary setting. I try to reach beyond the borders – Art is a language that has given me access to new narratives, – using mixed medium to exaggerate details in mostly traditional-based motifs.
