Abisola Kuburat Gbadamosi
Abisola Kuburat Gbadamosi is a self-taught multidisciplinary visual artist and creative expressionist born in Nigeria. Originally from Ibadan, Oyo state.
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 vocalize. The use of watercolor gives her works a distinct and noticeable style which she uses to create ethereal portraits, successfully translating her different states of consciousness. Abisola believes in the spirituality of life and the ultimate divine source beyond the physical realm. She believes that Heaven can be very much experienced on Earth and is inquisitive in the different realms that our consciousness can take us. For Gbadamosi, her art changes as her mind moves from one state of consciousness to the next. She understands how the mind is one of the most powerful tools we inhabit as human beings, and how it has the power to determine the entire trajectory of our lives.
