Èkó Òfé (Free Education) art by Gbenga Adeku: Translationally means Free Education. This artwork is closely knitted to the artist’s history & experience. On the completion of his degree in fine & applied art at the Obafemi Awolowo University, Gbenga was posted to serve his country as a youth corp in northern Nigeria. His primary assignment was a junior community secondary school at Yemmedi village, Karaye, Kano State. He was the first fine art teacher, this village ever had since the school was created. The students love fine art but it grieved him that most of his students sat on the floor because there were few chairs and largely without adequate art materials to learn with.
Gbenga being a beneficiary of the “Free Education” legacy of the great nationalist, Obafemi Awolowo, desires to see more quality education reach the grassroots northern Nigerian communities. He also dreamt of better schooling conditions for northern villages and kept that vision in this painting.


Gbenga Adeku is an award-winning artist.
He paints afro-pop subjects and self-styled impressionistic surrealism. He’s also an avid upcycle artist who specializes in the use of plastic waste in creating fantastic sculptures. He uses such intense colors and forms to express his feelings, values, and concerns.
