The Diasporic Weaver

Art + Illustration

Adeyemi Adegbesan describes himself as a ‘Diasporic Weaver’, and you can see he’s not lying with his intricate works. His creations are so distinctive that you’d recognise it anywhere! The complex weavings in his work are made to be reminiscent of royalty, with a strong Afrocentric focus. He’s a fan of Black American cultural music icons too, creating designs that are breathtaking like this one of Erykah Badu! See some of his work below.

Yemi speaks about his work and view point in this interesting interview with Revolt.
