Oladeji’s work spans mediums from breathtaking oil on canvas works to delicate pastorals and thought provoking graphite on paper pieces. He uses his work to reference and reflect contemporary scenes across Nigeria, focusing on everyday stories in domesticity and occasionally abstract ideas.
Working in watercolor, acrylics, charcoals and oils, his art is influenced by his environment and he draws inspiration from his daily encounters in Africa’s largest mega-city. Incorporating heavy brush strokes, vibrant colors and found objects, his work is bold in nature and inspires you to elevate the everyday.
Deji states: "I love to depict the everyday scenes around me, and I’m inspired by what happens around us everyday in Nigeria.
