Artist Àsìkò's first UK solo exhibition will be showing at the Gallery of African Art in Mayfair, London from 27th April. 📸🔥
“Ade 'Àsìkò' Okelarin is a self-taught Nigerian photographer.  His works are about "self-exploration and proliferate an internal conversation about culture, memory and identity." Àsìkò creates emotionally resonate images that are drawn from his experiences. Through his work, he explores the female form and the role of women in society -drawing from the modifications and adornments used by women to enhance, change and modify their bodies. 📸🔥
Àsìkò's vividly striking images are layered in light, mood, texture, and rooted in a narrative. The conversation he creates through his work present his take on African heritage - telling the story of how cultures express themselves aesthetically.” ~ GAFRA ART | #asiko #galleryofafricanart #gafraart #fortheculture #nigerianartists #fortheloveofart #asikoartist #africanart #womeninart #blackwomeninart

A story about struggle and the butterfly. .
A man spent hours watching a butterfly struggling to emerge from its cocoon. It managed to make a small hole, but its body was too large to get through it. After a long struggle, it appeared to be exhausted and remained absolutely still. 
The man decided to help the butterfly and, with a pair of scissors, he cut open the cocoon, thus releasing the butterfly. However, the butterfly’s body was very small and wrinkled and its wings were all crumpled. 
The man continued to watch, hoping that, at any moment, the butterfly would open its wings and fly away. Nothing happened; in fact, the butterfly spent the rest of its brief life dragging around its shrunken body and shrivelled wings, incapable of flight. 
So here's the thing, the man was hoping to help the butterfly but in actuality he messed with natures way of training the butterfly and strengthening its wings.

We all want avoid the struggles and wish they would pass as soon as possible. The struggles are there to teach and prepare  us for the road ahead.

A queen
Pretty women wonder where my secret lies. 
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size 
But when I start to tell them, 
They think I’m telling lies. 
I say, 
It’s in the reach of my arms, 
The span of my hips, 
The stride of my step, 
The curl of my lips. 
I’m a woman 
Phenomenally. 
Phenomenal woman, 
That’s me. 
Now you understand 
Just why my head’s not bowed. 
I don’t shout or jump about 
Or have to talk real loud. 
When you see me passing, 
It ought to make you proud. 
I say, 
It’s in the click of my heels, 
The bend of my hair, 
the palm of my hand, 
The need for my care. ’Cause I’m a woman 
Phenomenally. 
Phenomenal woman, 
That’s me. - Maya Angelou

Religion carries Curse and Blessing. 
While the Gospel has just Blessing. Because in Grace, curse has been crucified with Jesus Himself on the cross of Calvery.

Diversity is at the core of what we do and is something we champion in all its forms, every day. In homage to Black History Month 2017, we focused on using The Dots to show inspirational, black individuals who are making creative history, now. We'd like to publicly thank all that have been involved this time around. Image: @asiko_artist

Success is yours, and favour will be your middle name, you can't not be left out, and you can't fail anymore, you must win cos your heavenly father is always a winner, the evil once can't seal your joy again in Jesus' name.

Sound advice for any creative “Think in bodies of work. A series of 3 to begin, perhaps. Then 10. 20. A strong body of unified work is much harder than a dozen single images that are all over the map. This approach will force you to think deeper.” – Dave Duchemin

For me this year is about projects and developing concise bodies of work. It makes me think deeper into the subject matter and streamlines my away from random beautiful work, it’s hard work but it pays off in the end.

Plan for new things
The world always seems brighter when you've just made something that wasn't there before - Neil Gaiman
2017 is around the corner and I plotting new ideas and projects. December is the month to plan and strategise the for the following year but I have found there is not enough time in the day. I have to carve out the time to plan or I won't be able to. 
Trying out new things with amazing dancer and choreographer Esie. I will be working with dancers in 2017 so if you are interested in doing something interesting with me, reach out.

AUTUMN | "THE AGE OF BEAUTY " |Now that we reflect upon this entire photoshoot, it had essences of Beyonce's 'LEMONADE' in it -  femininity, strength, culture, identity, beauty, melancholy... Many themes were explored here. We looked at Victorian England from an African perspective  and had lots of fun doing so. This is yet another fantastic story told through us by one of our favourite artists, photographer @asiko_artist. Thank you for always making magic happen! ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” ― Marianne Williamson

What you create.

The most profound things I have discovered as an artist is creating work that matters. It changed everything about what I do, it’s what made me become an artist. Now there is a big question, how do I create work that matters?

That was a bit of soul searching question for me, in order to create work that mattered I had to be aware of who I was and what interested me. As a child of diaspora I was always fascinated with my culture and where I am from, and how that forms my identity as a person. This thought processes and questions have spilled into what I create as a photographer. Who you are and the questions you have should inform the work you create.

Your story

I was fortunate to attend a beautiful intimate concert where a friend of mine Bumi Thomas was performing (The concert also had the enigmatic Temi Dollface, she’s amazing live). One of Bumis songs called Self-Portrait struck a chord with me, the chorus lyrics read ‘Only you can tell your story and paint the portrait of your truth’ Bumi has a way with words.

So the stories we tell, paint a truth of who we are and where we are from. It’s beautiful when art is used to tell a story of culture or a people and I feel this is one of my roles as an artist.

I have been thinking about the narrative of Africa and how we can use photography and art to illustrate the truth of who we are. I am setting up an Instagram platform entitled ‘This is my Africa’ @africanartphoto , which will be a submission based curation account where people can send their images of the continent and what their narratives are.
