Selected works from Ade's catalogue alongside new pieces and collaborations with a cohort of artists make up this thought-provoking collection examining the relationship between nature and humans.


Phantom includes a body of work that addresses recent global issues. Most of the work in this exhibition looks through the past, present and future of global societies, touching on subjects such as environment, politics and beliefs. Some of the works highlight amazing beauty from nature incorporated into the urban environments. The show also includes some collaborative prints, by artists including David Mach RA, Lennox Dunbar RSA, Ian Burke, Florence Poirier Nkpa, Ahmed Ahmed, and Barry McGlashan

Ade Adesina, born in Nigeria 1980, is currently a full time Artist based in Aberdeen, Scotland.

<<Adesina combines traditional printmaking techniques with an innovative approach to subject matter. Drawing on a vast reserve of memories and imagined scenarios, Adesina has created a visual language laden with symbolism and incisive comment.>>
