Adegoke’s Biography

Born 17th August 2003 in Lagos, Nigeria to Mr and Mrs Adebanjo, Adegoke Adebanjo has been drawing for as long as he can remember. He hails from Ijebu in Ogun State, Nigeria and is a hyperrealism artist. Working mostly with charcoal pencils, he has been gaining global fame for his hyperrealism portraits and is headed for a bright future in the Creative space.

Apart from drawing a picture exactly and precisely as it is, he also shows what’s behind it – the flaws of the model and the real mood, making the hyper-realistic drawing subject more relatable, creating an even more realistic drawing.

His pencil drawings look effortless. But they take time, careful planning and an observant eye to be so accurate and yet look so effortless. On average, Adegoke’s pieces take him 1 to 2 months to complete with him spending approximately 100-250 hours on each work. He currently works from Lagos, Nigeria in his home studio.

Within his work Adegoke Adebanjo strives to ‘intensify the normal’ and create scenes and portraits that have an emotional and social effect on the viewer. Building some kind of history into it. Drawing faces that tell a big story or an object that has a certain amount of wear and tear or rust. Trying to render not just the subject or the object, but what it has been through.

A lot of people around the world are still in awe of how a young man born in a low-income family in Lagos, Nigeria, creates lifelike Masterpieces!
