Niyi Adeogun’s illustrative portraits are influenced by both identity and passion. His upbringing in Nigeria as well as his profession as a design engineer impact his use of space, form and abstraction.
Niyi Adeogun is a Nigerian interdisciplinary artist, design engineer, creative entrepreneur and creative director. Niyi has always had a passion for art and design since his early childhood years. He kept his zeal on hold for a while, until 2015 when he began to explore his faith, which led him to go into graphic/digital arts. He finished at UPEI with a B.Sc in Sustainable Design Engineering, which developed his skill in taking a sustainable approach and creating environmental-friendly solutions for clients. The PEI Art Bank recently purchased two of his artworks, and he was nominated for a Charlottetown Arts and Culture Award in the Emerging Artist category.
Each artwork is custom framed in a wood frame with D-rings for installation. Framing is completed in Toronto, Canada.
