Ayobola Kekere-Ekun: An Artist for Environmental Consciousness

In the midst of global discussions about climate change and environmental preservation, some voices resonate through unique mediums. Ayobola Kekere-Ekun is an artist from Lagos, Nigeria known for her quilling—a technique where paper is shaped to create captivating forms. This medium stands tall in her artwork as an emblem of transformation. 

Through her lens, Ayobola nudges her audience to rediscover the potential in the mundane. Paper is biodegradable, renewable, and in her hands, a canvas of potential. As our planet grapples with plastic pollution and waste management, Ayobola's medium choice reflects the value of reusing materials that resonate with environmental sustainability.

Her work was featured in Art Africa magazine and showcased in events such as the Future Fair in New York and Miart in Milan. For those inspired and keen to explore more, Ayobola's exclusive pieces are available for purchase from the Arete catalogue of artwork.
