Ayo Akinwande


The lost bride  She had great hopes when she said 'I do' but found marriage unfulfilling and bewildering. Still clothed in her wedding dress, she abandons her role as wife to search for her true identity and seeks the solace only nature affords.

Ayo Akinwande lives in Lagos and is a trained architect who graduated from Covenant University. In his journey to creative freedom, he found expression in the art of Photography and has since sought to expound his expressive and thematic scope. His work focuses on the performative possibilities of everyday life; drawing his props from the same palette. He strives to recreate surreal experiences which he believes through keen observation can be traced in memory and reality. He addresses social issues with the use of satire – while holding a light to interpersonal relationships.
