Àsìkò is a UK based Nigerian conceptual artist who explores his ideas within the medium of photography, mixed media and film. His work is constructed in the narrative that straddles between fantasy and reality as a response to his experiences of identity, culture and heritage.
Through the use of constructed storytelling and the application of composition, form and movement - Àsìkòs work allows him to draw the viewer into a conceptual narrative that radiates emotions of strength, vulnerability, defiance and loneliness.
The stories told through his images are an anthology of his emotional state and its intersection with culture and identity; they are a love letter to the African story - celebrating the beauty of blackness, womanhood and the African way of life. His work is organic, surreal, emotionally layered, all informed within an African cultural aesthetic as well as his connection to the contemporary world he lives in.
