James Adebayo is a self-taught artist working predominantly with acrylic and oil paint. His figurative paintings often depict scenes of historical and contemporary life, familiar moments, mundane activities and simultaneously convey innate human emotions and nostalgic feelings.

These narratives further delve into themes of self-identity and cultural values in his practice. His paintings aim to reflect the diversity of humanity and invite viewers to look at one’s reflection with satisfaction. James has participated in a group exhibition at Artpedia Gallery (A Tale of shared experience), Lagos, 2021.
