Suraj Adekola is one of the leading African Nigerian artists of international reputation.
In 2015, his works began to hit the international auctions from Bonhams African art auction in London, where five of his paintings were sold, among his six paintings that were auctioned.
In 2017, Suraj was listed among the ‘TOP FIFTY Nigerian artists by turnover at African Art Auctions’. Also, in 2017 and 2018, his paintings were auctioned and sold at Piasa African contemporary art auction in Paris. Furthermore, between 2018 and 2019, his paintings have been featured and sold at Geneve Encheres auction in Switzerland, and other art auctions in Portugal and Nigeria.

He is currently studying MA in Contemporary Fine Arts at the University of Sarford, United Kingdom. With his resilient quest for novelty in his paintings, he moves from abstraction to representational impressionism, and also oscillate from shades of styles and techniques to explore themes of social commentary and globalization to engage and convey the message of unity, hope and positivity using acrylic on canvas as my medium of expression
