Olayanju A. Dada
M.A Contemporary Fine Art Practice
I work mostly with found materials on my surfaces . My narratives are inspired by the poetics of congregating these dissimilar textures and materials . I can describe my work as experimental collage involving a range of in-between processes and methods. And I love employing humour and absurdities in my narratives. The focus in my Art is on translating displaced objects to a further state of meaning and symbolic essence thereby creating a 're-entry' into the flow of cultural transactions. I consider my work to be a sort of storytelling but one grounded in narratives and real social endemic tension.
