feature: “light, texture, mood” – àsìkò fine art photography by ade okelarin

November 24, 2015

àsìkò, aka photographer Ade Okelarin, creates jaw-dropping conceptual pictures. Focusing mostly on portraits, the London-based artist’s work conveys a strong narrative. He writes: “I am a self-taught concept driven photographer who creates emotionally resonate images that are drawn from my experiences. I explore my ideas using portraiture, fabric and adornment, as I am interested in ethnography and how cultures express themselves visually. My work is layered in light, texture, mood and rooted in a narrative. Photography for me is about a conversation on how I see the world, how I interpret my African heritage and how I unravel a dream.”
