Folasade Adeoso: combining modelling with digital art

Folasade Adeoso is a coming-of-age Nigerian-Canadian artist who worked as a model in New York with renown photographers like Kwesi Abbensetts and Baroon Clairborne. She spent years during her fashion career drawing inspiration from pop culture, fashion and music, using figures like Grace Jones, Beyonce or Sade, plus her own fashion shoots to create unique digital collages.

Folasade’s technique does not make use of complex graphic design methods but relies on line-drawing and .gif animations.  Exploring themes like religion, human interaction, pop culture, ethnography, motherhood and childhood, Folasade juxtaposes images to construct new narratives which speak to the viewer of modern life, society, culture and its people.

About Author

I am a 31-year-old Romanian writer who graduated from the University of Helsinki with a Master's in Social Psychology and is currently in the process of transition from a full-time nurse to a full-time writer. I appreciate the life in Finland because it has given me the tools to dig deeper into my obscure personality and produce better writing. My poetry has been published in Red Paint Hill Publishing and Vraeyda Literary. I am currently a full-time member of the Helsinki Writers' Group based in Helsinki, Finland. My passion for art started in my childhood and peaked in 9th grade when I discovered Surrealism and the works of Salvador Dali and Renee Magritte. I appreciate everything that is beautiful and ugly but especially all things out of the ordinary.
