'I work mostly with found materials on my surfaces . My narratives are inspired by the poetics of congregating these dissimilar textures and materials of diverse origin and experiences . I can describe my work as largely experimental collage involving a range of in-between processes and methods' - Olayanju Dada

Olayanju Dada is a Nigerian born mixed media artist who lives and works in Germany. Born in 1969 in Ibadan, Nigeria, Dada grew up between Southern Nigeria and New Delhi, India. These settings exposed him to different artistic influences which are featured very prominently in his work.

Dada uses found objects and materials as his chosen medium - cardboard, old wood, household wares, sand, ink, and paper commonly feature in his works. His narratives are born of the balladry he finds in cloistering different textures and materials, making his work "an experimental collage." He uses a broad range of methodologies and executions to develop and create each piece. Influenced by artists such as Rauschenberg, Basquiat and Twins Seven Seven of Nigeria amongst others, Dada's work is vivid, full of colour, writing and texture.

Dada says, 'My narratives are inspired by the poetics of congregating these dissimilar textures and materials of diverse origin and experiences. The focus of my practice is on translating displaced objects to a further state of meaning and symbolic essence, thereby creating a 're-entry' into the flow of cultural transactions and narratives."
