About the Artist
Emmanuel Adebayo (b.1997, Nigeria) is a visual artist whose practice attempts to transcend all of humanity to higher ethics and a more inclusive time, space, place and matter. Emmanuel Adebayo lends his practice to addressing the increasingly difficult interaction between humans and nature. According to him, humans are part of nature, as much nature as trees and animals, and therefore should not be seen as separate entities. He spotlights the unity of life, its interconnectedness in one tapestry of time. Emmanuel lives and works in Lagos, Nigeria.
