There is the creativity

I work plastic, wood and metal in very unique ways. My mastery of these waste is a statement on environmental issues.

about me

Adenle John, born March 27 is an alumni of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka; he is a multi media artist who lectured at the Federal College of Education, Abeokuta and presently lectures at Creative Art department of University of Lagos, Akoka, Nigeria.

Hi guys!

I am John Adenle, a sculptor and multimedia artist, an educator, and the leader of an emerging art movement. I create pieces entirely out of waste plastics, wood, and cellophane, transforming refuse that would otherwise litter our planet into artistic spectacles. I have a Doctorate of Philosophy, a Master of Arts (University of Nigeria, Nsukka,) in art education and a Bachelor of Arts (Obafemi Awolowo University, Adeyemi College of Education, Nigeria) in sculpture. I am a lecturer at the Federal College of Education in Abeokuta, Nigeria, where I teach sculpture and art education and mentor students as they embark on their artistic paths.

I take every opportunity possible to spread and promote art practices through attending workshops, organizing artist residencies, facilitating art workshops and occasionally producing children’s television and radio programmes.
