The Ohio Artist Registry (OAR) is an exciting opportunity for artists to share their work, connect with the creative community, and establish an online presence—all on a free, virtual platform! The OAR encourages artists working in all art forms, throughout Ohio and beyond,  to create a profile, which allows them to better promote themselves and their work. Being listed in the OAR provides artists with new opportunities to share their work with clients, galleries, patrons, and audiences. A listing in the OAR does not confer an endorsement, approval, or verification by the Ohio Arts Council.

Ohio-based artist Samuel Adebuga draws from a successful graphic design career and editorial illustration experience. “Art is a language that has given me access to new narratives, using mixed-media to exaggerate details in mostly traditional based motifs.” My paintings, largely autobiographical, are acute observations of constant transformation of everything that life dictates in society at large. Adebuga’s process is self revealing, and I uses it to investigate, explore, manipulate and ultimately celebrate the way in which I perceives things. This is a window to the world, an uninterrupted exchange of one’s thought.

Adebuga’s juxtaposes the subject’s detail while remaining figurative, expressive and conceptual. An artistic journey with feeling: thought, shape and color follow the harmony between texture and gesture of complex interaction. The combination of painterly, conceptual and poetic maneuverings shapes the process. Each painting is unique just as each viewer’s experience of it is unique.

Graduates of Graphic Designs, Bennett College, UK, and Bradford School, Ohio.                                                                  Studies Fine Arts at The City University of New York, and Studio Practice at The Ohio State University.
