Born in rural Nigeria in 1987, Tosin is a bit of an unusual artist. He did not study art; however over the years, he has honed his natural talent in such a manner that has made him a well appreciated artist in Nigeria. With many group exhibitions to his credit, Tosin Adeyin has his works in collections of prominent Africans as well as in Nigeria’s National Collection in the National Art Gallery, Abuja.
His main painting technique is the conventional oil painting on canvass and mixed media. He also sometimes employs Araism technique [ a medium whose philosophical content is rooted in African culture]
“Tosin’s realism and photo- realism works tends to confront viewers with questions and realities that are somewhat uncomfortable” - Olumide Young”
