Yisa’s work is in private and public collections around the world including the collections of several international diplomats. His technique has resulted into the development of Remoglue, a new painting medium for artists.
Though paint may be Yisa Akinbolaji's first material of choice, "I do not just paint; I create using paint," says the artist. Like his own worldwide romp—which has taken him from his native Nigeria, where he was featured in Nigerian Artists: A Who's Who and Bibliography, to the University of North Dakota, where he earned his MFA, to his current home in Winnipeg, Canada, where he is a full-time visual artist—Akinbolaji sees art as one connected journey. "In my work, I reveal the colors and patterns that lie beneath the covering layers of paint," he says. "My art technique emphasizes the character of my visual narratives, my journey, my experience and my imagination in a personal and unique way."
