A graduate of Architecture from the University of Nottingham (2012), Ayo Filade (b.1990), known better as AyoDraws, was first encouraged to draw and paint by his artist father.

He is largely concerned with the contrasts in lighting and skin texture, as well as with details. Titling his art “Disparate Realism”, Filade’s preoccupation with surrealism manifests in his interrogation of the consequences of conflict, separation and break, and how we deal with their rising tensions individually and as a society.
