Preview: Preview: Thurs 5th February (Trongate 103 First Thursday)

Nigerian born Ade Adesina is a traditional printmaker working mainly with linocut and etching. He combines his African cultural roots with his British culture, producing work that makes people reflect about themselves and their histories.

Adesina creates large-scale linocuts and etchings which combine technical virtuosity with thought provoking themes and an acute sense of humour. His highly detailed prints are rich with political comment and observations. His work is a visual commentary around the ideas of ecology and our ever-changing world, in particular Adesina has a fascination with how the human footprint is affecting our planet, "our world is full of wonderful landscapes and I wish to highlight the continual damage caused through things such as deforestation, the politics of energy consumption and endangered wild species."
