Work Of Tayo Adenaike: Arts+Minds Lecture Series says
Tayo Adenaike, who is of Yoruba parentage, was born in southwestern Nigeria. He studied art at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, where he received his bachelor's degree in 1979 and his master's of fine arts degree three years later. Since graduating he has largely worked in advertising, and he currently serves as artistic director of Dawn Functions, Ltd., a major Nigerian firm in Enugu.

A gifted watercolorist, Adenaike deftly utilizes uli styles and akika, traditional wall uli background swirls. His complex designs are based on personal reflections, political commentaries, scenes from everyday life, portraits, and animal forms.
