We have managed to collaborate with Godwin Adesoye and now manage a large collection of his early works which is great for collectors, but Godwin doesn’t think so. He believes whilst his early artworks are rare because they have their own unique styles. His best is yet to come!
Through his exposure to international influences and sheer determination. He is a talented impressionist artist with a twist, and also boasts membership of the society of Nigerian artists. Godwin has participated in several solo and group exhibitions nationally. Which include the Nike Art centre in Abuja and the prestigious Quintessence gallery in Ikoyi. Thus Internationally becoming a house hold name in the minds of collectors and patrons of Nigerian art.
Godwin’s paintings are an example of today’s Art. His style, technique and materials are distilled from contemporary experiences and influences. His style of painting could be viewed to be impressionist in rendition. While using modern materials like oil paint derived from organic and inorganic developed materials produced from extensive research and technology to withstand the test of time. He uses canvas materials as his paintings surface. Taking into consideration the flexibility and durability it has over other surfaces.
The subject of Godwin’s paintings change from the abstract to the real. Without complicating the surface with motives and unidentified icons. The choice of colour schemes are done deliberately to express mood and messages. Using the vocabulary and syntac of the colourist while maintaining a consistent pattern of line, colour and form. Godwin’s dexterity can be considered to be mature in comparison to his chronological age. Thus speaking volumes of the artist’s state of mind.
”The spirit of truth, freedom, love and wisdom helps one to see clearly. God has made is possible for me, thanks for my family and friends and everyone that gave me a push. I believe I am at the stage of expressing to people the gift of life. Moving on with the spirit of art and I am looking forward to using my brush to achieve greatness to this nation.”
