feature: creating new narratives, folasade adeoso’s digital collages

October 27, 2014

This summer we wrote on Nigerian/Canadian model/artist Folasade Adeoso and her headwrap collection, ‘1953’. We now turn the spotlight on to the art of this New York based digital designer. With her signature digital collages, Adesoso is gradually making a name for herself. Normally using ethnographic photgraphy, Adeoso takes photographs and attempts to give these base images new narratives; often obscuring the faces of her subjects with flowers. At times, she also uses herself as the subject (pictured in the second image down). Explore Adeoso’s work, below.
