Dayo Adesina

Dayo’s work examines childhood, memory, place, sexuality and the body; the visual manifestation of these themes. Through narrative they create moments of sustained vulnerability and moments where change is taking place. Dayo deconstructs personal experiences, objects, and reintroduce them through several perspectives to examine how things are ingrained in us from a young age and resurface throughout our lives.

How do you determine success?

Success for me would mean being able be a full time working artist and being able to support my loved ones. I feel like I’ve had to sacrifice so much of the things that really matter in life for art and I feel a lot of guilt about that the older I get. I’d feel successful when I felt like I didn’t have to sacrifice so much.
