#Repost @asiko_artist ・・・ Exhibition reviews --- Check out this great review of my exhibition ‘Conservations + The Woman Code at the Gallery of African Art written by Hanou Amendah for @obatalamag . Here’s an except “His body of work is a portrayal of black African womanhood in all its complexity with a moving touch of sensitivity blended with an incredible aesthetic. His previous series of photographs about “cultural adornments” was exhibited at the Gallery of African Art in a joint show with Evans Mbugua in 2016. He has created with this new series, a space where strength cohabits with vulnerability. Subjugation dances with resilience and resistance, and beauty coexists with violence.” Check out the review, link in my profile and don’t forget to see the work which is on show till the 9th June. --- Image: Duality of Purpose Model @iamjalicia Makeup @neonvelvet Hair @jamescatalanohair Styling @trendy_rail --- #love #art #photography #portrait #asiko #culture #potd #africa #nigeria #heritage

#Repost @asiko_artist ・・・ Leave your home --- Last weekend I was at the Brunei gallery SOAS in London to check out the exhibition of John Thomson ‘China and Siam’. His beautiful work of portraits and landscapes provides a unique perspective of provinces within China and Siam between 1862 and 1872. The black and white portraits are truly beautiful, some you can see in my insta stories. I believe getting out of your usual space helps to evolve and heighten creativity. It helps you see differently and opens your mind to new possibilities. I believe travel whatever form, either leaving your immediate environment or hooping on a plane to a far away place really inspires the soul. So pick up your tools (camera or whatever) and leave your home and adventure out into the world. There is so much to see and be inspired by. --- Speaking of travel, I am looking forward to going to the motherland next week where I am hoping to spend sometime in Oshogbo and be inspired. --- Working with creative minds behind @ourfreetribe on some portraits of children, looking at environment, childhood and mental health. The image is of beautiful Georgina Bluebell.

#Repost @asiko_artist ・・・ Let’s talk money --- Guys let’s talk money. How much are you charging? Are you confident charging the amount you charge? Do you undercharge? I know a few of my guys/girls that undercharge and I tell them off but it’s not the heart of the matter. There is a value and fear problem here. Do you value yourself and your craft? You have to look inside to sort the person inside. It’s a process that can take a while. Here’s what I do though, I sit down and do my numbers and my budget, and then I know how much I need for the month. My rates are based on those values. They aren’t based on emotional hiccups, it is based on cold hard facts, how much money do I need a month? I charge what I need to and that’s it. My rates have been going up over the years based on inflation and the increasing value I place on my work. PS I am not below the market average and I’m not supposed to be. So tell me about your about your charging, are you confident charging the amount you charge? Do you undercharge? --- From the Adorned series from my first exhibition Model @iampaulaokunzuwa Styling @trendy_rail Hair @gdscoleman Makeup @loribeemua #love #asiko #photography #style #portrait #portraiture #african #conceptual #instahub #money #africaninspired #creative #culture
