Djeneba Aduayom
Lives & Works in Los Angeles, CA, United States
Djeneba Aduayom is a self-taught artist whose work is characterised by a sense of movement, performance, and personal interrogation. Her aesthetic is as much influenced by her multidisciplinary training and extensive travels as it is by her multicultural heritage.  Aduayom always seeks to capture the layers of emotion within people and their relation to landscape, often with hints of abstraction and surrealism. The ability to speak multiple languages, both literally and visually, also fuels her inspiration and creative output. The imaginative worlds she builds invite her viewers inwards and beckons them to travel to a universe of their own making. For Aduayom, humans are varied and complex beings united by underlying commonalities. The human experience is more universal and uniting than individual and derisive. Dualities exist, juxtaposing against one another in striking and complementary ways. These observations are at the core of her creative expression. Djeneba Aduayom will be presented by Galerie Number 8.
