Visual artist Dare Adenuga bares his soul through his art. His work varies from painting to sculpture and mixed media with no limitations to experimenting with elements.
Dare began creating art since he was a child. His artistically inclined father helped nurture his craft until he moved to Yaba College of Technology, where he studied Fine Art. While in school, he took part in several student exhibitions like Beautiful Nigeria at the National Museum Onikan and Olokun Art festival in Badagry before graduating as a painter in 2011.
Since then, Dare has participated in several exhibitions like ‘The Root,’ ‘Prince Charles Royal Visit,’ ‘It’s not furniture,’ and was also a finalist at the 2017 ARTXLagos/ARTXPrize.
Now, he makes art with just threads, ropes, fabrics, newsprints, and acrylic in his studio.
As a storyteller, it’s no surprise that Dare bases the theme of his art on real-life situations, and as he creates, he does not hesitate to share the story behind each piece.
