Contemporary African art has taken Europe by storm, and certain artists, like El Anatsui, and Chéri Samba, are considered important figures when discussing contemporary African art. Akinbolaji has earned a place at the table with this illustrious group. His work is bold and fresh; presenting traditional African abstract conceptions in a  unique way. - Uwera, Full Moon Africa.

Though paint may be Yisa Akinbolaji's first material of choice, "I do not just paint; I create using paint," says the artist. Like his own worldwide romp—which has taken him from his native Nigeria, where he was featured in Nigerian Artists: A Who's Who and Bibliography, to the University of North Dakota, where he earned his MFA, to his current home in Winnipeg, Canada, where he is a full-time visual artist—Akinbolaji sees art as one connected journey. "In my work, I reveal the colors and patterns that lie beneath the covering layers of paint," he says. "My art technique emphasizes the character of my visual narratives, my journey, my experience and my imagination in a personal and unique way."

Yisa’s work is in private and public collections around the world including the collections of several international diplomats. His technique has resulted into the development of Remoglue, a new painting medium for artists.

Wisdom Garden  (2012)  W40” by H30”

In each experimental painting, there are new expressions I intend the viewers to independently decode. 95% of the time, the viewers have favoured their inexact speculations; the experience which they love to share and the true mirth of art engagement. At conceptualization, I ensure that the final visual impact occupy my consideration. Using layers upon layers of paint with Remoglue, I’m able to engage the viewers in the upside down thinking process relating to each work. - Yisa Akinbolaji -
