Seun Adeyemi Illustrates Nigerians The Differences And Similarities Of A Nigerian

23-year-old Seun Adeyemi is an Abuja-based artist, who does impressive work with both traditional and digital mediums.

His latest project is a digital portrait series, where he uses geometric shapes to create Nigerian faces of different tribes, genders, and religions.

Inspired by the work of South African graphic artist, Sindiso Nyoni, Adeyemi adopted the old art technique, cubism, to create the minimalist Nigerian faces.

The illustrations all have a similar outline – a metaphor for what we have in common– but each face also has a distinguishing feature, from a hijab to a fila, highlighting and celebrating our differences.
