Modelebareoluwa Maku, also known as Dele or Shadesoblvck, is a 20 year old artist from Abeokuta.
On when he started drawing, “I’ve been drawing for as long as I can remember. I never went to any specialist art school so I guess it’s a gift from God. I’m not sure what definition I can give my art or what category I would place myself into and at the moment, my art is a hobby … something I just do because it’s part of me. I do drawings, digital paintings and a little bit of fabric painting.”
When asked about what inspires him, he says, “No one knows which dimension inspirations come from, but for me it’s just about what comes to my mind. It’s kind of random and spontaneous mostly, unless there is a specific subject to study.”
