The Linocut Prints of Ade Adesina

by Andy SmithPosted on

Scotland-based artist Ade Adesina creates massive linocut prints that he says reflect on both his African roots and European culture, “producing work that makes people reflect on the past, present and the future.” His practice linocuts, woodcuts, sculpture, and other disciplines. Known for enormous cityscapes and landscapes, recent work also features his own sensibility applied to still-life objects.

“My work is a visual commentary around the ideas of ecology and our ever-changing world,” the artist says. “I am fascinated by how the human footprint is affecting our planet. Our world is full of wonderful landscapes and I wish to highlight the continual damage caused through things such as deforestation, the politics of energy consumption, and endangered wild species. I am a traditional printmaker, painter and sculptor with modern twist; I work with mostly woodcarving, linocut, etching, and oil”
