Tejumola Butler Adenuga
Tejumola Butler Adenuga is a Nigerian-born, London-based multidisciplinary artist and designer whose practice focuses on the intentional removal of informational excess from found photography through a subtle, minimalistic approach. His recent works fixate on creating fictional West African mythology, building a universe that tells a story of the development of West African tribes without influence and generational trauma. This is practiced via the mediums of painting, furniture, design, and art direction. He studied Design at Ravensbourne University and has four years of art directing experience for notable musician Tinie Tempah. He has also been commissioned for and collaborated with notable international brands such as Crocs, Adidas, Uber, New York Times, MTV VMA's, Dr. Martens, Soho House, Atlantic Magazine, Berluti, the British Fashion Council, The New Yorker, Pentagram, Citizen Magazine, and LAMY. As of today, over 450+ people have Tejumola’s work permanently tattooed on their skin. He currently lives and works in London, England.
