Ademola Adeshina hails from Osun State in western Nigeria. He studied general art in The Polytechnic, Ibadan, and was later trained as a textile designer at Yaba College of Technology, Lagos.

Ademola is a self taught painter. He became a full time studio artist in 1999. Beholding his diverse styles of painting, one could deduce that Adeshina's mind is full of unending ideas, and his unquenchable desire to explore these ideas makes him delve into painting in different styles.

Adeshina has been experimenting on how to strike a balance between abstraction and other forms of art, which over the years has produced the harvest of a particular style of painting that is now identified as being unique to him.

He adopted pointillism, simplification and dematerialization of human forms, suffused with decorative patterns and symbols drawn across the global space.
His work brims and bristles with rich and vibrant pastel-like palette with a unique allure that arrests the attention and invokes introspection.

He has several group exhibitions to his credit and his works are widely collected by private individuals and public organizations both home and abroad.
