Jumoke Sanwo- Creative Director

 

Jumoke is the Founder/Creative Director of Revolving Art Incubator [RAI]
She conceived the idea of Revolving Art Incubator as an intervention to inadequate spaces for artist engagement within the Nigerian creative community.


She understands the role the creative community can play as a catalyst to stimulate and impact the community. With the introduction of an Incubator space dedicated to the artist to explore possibilities beyond the traditional "white cube" space, she has set the pace for further artistic intervention for social impact and development within the arts.


Jumoke is also an established visual artist working out of Lagos, her works have been showcased in Amsterdam, London, New York, Brussels, Berlin, Dubai, Venice Italy, Lagos, Sudan, South Africa, Addis Ababa, Benin, Chad, Congo Brazzaville and Ghana as part of solo, group shows, and exhibitions.

David Akinola- Art Direction

 

 

The artist David Akinola was the first artist to engage the Incubator space under RAI Artist-At-Work program, and was appointed the role of Art Direction after his remarkable approach to creative expression during his residency. Born in Zaria, David graduated from Ahmadu Bello University with B.A Hons in Industrial Design. Upon graduation, he embarked on a freelance career, continually refining and contextualizing his style which emerged through his focus on the aesthetics of lines and colors.

His intricate illustrative works are often narratives of his conscious and subconscious mind which reveal his interests in feminism, architecture, psychology, physical Science, music production, sound engineering, Yoruba mythology and culture.

David brings his fresh flair as an artist and his background in Industrial design to the team, to push the art direction of RAI where he continues to push the scale and boundaries of his art .
