Adébayo Bolaji (b. 1983 in London as son of Nigerian parents) is a multi-disciplinary artist who lives and works in London. He is a painter with an amazing background and breadth of interests covering writing, filmmaking, theatre and film directing. He also is a professional actor, but what he likes the most is to put his
paintings and sculptures on stage. For him visual arts is the field that allows him a maximum of freedom.
After several solo exhibitions in London and Zurich, Galerie Kremers was pleased to host his first solo show in Berlin “Between two Worlds”. The title “Between two Worlds” can be seen as a term for his artistic approach as well as an introduction and invitation to this exhibition. Between the abstract and the figurative, the rough and the delicate Adébayo Bolaji balances his creative impulse and expresses his vision. The symbols and codes always transfer a meaning connected to heritage and cultural identity.
“The Crossover” is a title that says it all: the painting depicts a specific pose and is a result of an amalgamating process between different cultures.
