Alimi Adewale, a talented artist from Nigeria, embarks on a captivating creative odyssey, delving into the depths of the African experience. Through his latest series, Figurative Fusion, he seamlessly blends diverse artistic elements to offer a novel perspective on the expressive potential of the human form in modern art. Adewale’s artistic journey revolves around exploring African heritage, identity, and the human experience, inviting viewers to connect with Africa’s past, present, and future. He has expanded his artistic knowledge through international art workshops and employs painting, sculpture, and installation to critically examine the impact of urbanisation and the global economy on society. Adewale’s art strives to foster dialogue and cultural exchange, while celebrating the beauty and resilience of the African spirit. By showcasing the diverse cultures of Africa, he aims to contribute to a greater understanding and appreciation of the continent, forging connections that transcend borders and celebrate the interconnectedness of humanity.

“I am thrilled to welcome Alimi Adewale to Pearl Lam Galleries,” Pearl Lam, the founder of Pearl Lam Galleries, says. “He is an exceptional artist with a distinct voice who brings a fresh global perspective and new dynamics into the art world, together with the ability to evoke powerful emotions through his work. It’s an exciting time for the gallery as we continue to expand our roster and foster an international dialogue. I look forward to working with Alimi and supporting his growth.”
