Alexander 'Bunmi Ayeni

Alexander 'Bunmi Ayeni is a contemporary Nigerian realist/abstract painter who lives and works in Lagos. His colourful paintings pay homage to his homeland. His distinctive personal style emanates joy and peace and expresses the vibrant spirit and atmosphere of the African culture.

He earned a Bachelor of Art in Fine & Applied Arts and Fine Art Education from Adeyemi College of edu./ Obafemi Awolowo University — with honours.
His over two-decade working experience as Advertising Graphic Designer and Studio Artist brings an extensive mastery of colour theory, innate sense of rhythm, and compositional elements to each painting

As both traditional and digital painter, Bunmi’s use of both organic shapes and pixelated forms serve as references to living organisms as well as the world of technology. These patterns cohabitate in harmony, often superimposed upon the other, to create a reverie of unpredictable movement and transparent effects.

His art is visual poetry bursting forth with relentless energetic expression.
