UK-based Nigerian multi-disciplinary artist Manoel Bolutife Akure is a true polymath. Artist, director, musician - he’s a creative tour de force. Growing up in a family and culture that places enormous value on the importance of generational storytelling, Manoel's creative journey continues to be heavily influenced by his formative years in Africa.
Today his strengths lie in capturing performances and finding the beauty in simplicity. His style strikes a balance between grit and the refined, nostalgia and the now. He leans unapologetically into the unexpected and creates with intention.
