About the artist

Ajiboye Olugbenga Ayodeji is known in the art circle as Gbenga Ajiboye and hails from Oke-Opin in Kwara State.

Gbenga’s works are almost brightly coloured, sophisticated, bold and refreshingly experimental and replete with scintillating decorative patterns. At some other times, a toned down almost grayish canvas depicting sombre mood of his figures.

Equally remarkable is that most of Gbenga’s works comes with Yoruba subtitles, thereby forcing an art historical and analytical engagement.
