About asiko

Àsìkò is a visual artist who expresses his ideas through the medium of photography and mixed media. 
He was born in London, England and spent his formative years in Lagos, Nigeria and adolescent years in London. 

His work is constructed in the narrative that straddles between fantasy and reality as a response to his experiences of identity, culture and heritage.

Àsìkò uses his unique way of seeing the world to create portraiture constructed narratives for clients within the fashion and music industry. 

His project Layers was featured on the BBC and Huffington Post and exhibited at the South Bank in London. His recent project Adorned  was recently exhibited at The Gallery of African Art in London and made up his first solo show at Rele Gallery in Nigeria.
