Adébayo Bolaji (* 1983 in London as son of Nigerian parents) is a multidisciplinary artist who lives and works in London. He is a painter with an amazing background as a writer, theatre and film director. And he is a professional actor.

After several solo exhibitions in London and Zurich, GALERIE KREMERS opens his first solo exhibition in Germany. The title “Between Two Worlds” can be seen both as an indication of his artistic approach and as an introduction and invitation to this exhibition. Adébayo Bolaji moves between the abstract and the figurative, the rough and the fine. “Between two worlds”, the works enter into a dialogue with each other and open the conversation between artist and viewer. The symbols and graphic codes are carriers of meaning of cultural identities. “The Crossover” is a title that expresses this: the pose of the figure on the canvas and “its stage” are the successful result of a process of fusion between different cultures.
The paintings and drawings are colourful, full of energy and densely layered, each with its own character.
