Over time Art has been one of the most beautiful, passionate and detailed form of expressionism known to mankind and the world. It is known to portray and communicate the feelings, visions, thoughts and believes of the curator with the use of various Artistic materials and medium to display ideas as symbols and objects. Usually, it tells the tale and life experiences of the Artist, thereby giving its audience a glimpse and feel of the creator’s journey. Artists have been known to harness their craft and skills in order to show and express to their audience what they were feeling or thinking at the moment of the piece’s creation.

According to Adegboro Blessing Gbemileke, (Jahbless) a multi disciplinary contemporary visual Artist, “My art actually talks about the beauty and painful side of life because I am inspired by the facial expressions of humans and that is the major driving force of my art.

“My Art usually portrays an expression of what the picture is having in mind, and it is expressed with my choice of colour. I work as an expressionist artist.

“I basically make use of the three major colors, Blue, Red, Yellow but in particular, you’ll always see Yellow and purple in my work.

“Painting, in my perspective, is the act of interpreting and expressing my feelings by solving them with the use of colours,” Adegboro Blessing explains.
