ABOUT ADECHE

We are Adeche, an artist couple (Solomon and Adwoa) who love to paint and tell stories surrounding the wonderful and under-rated world of African mythology.

 

As a couple, we research, curate and paint all of our work together - our paintings always focus on African Mythological deities as well as African culture and folktales. Being Nigerian and Ghanaian diaspora, we have always felt that it is important to tell the stories of our ancestors and most importantly depict the deities and folklore surrounding people who look like us and come from the same continent in the world that we do. This is something that we haven't seen in mainstream media and art.

Check out our podcast Afro Mythos wherever you listen to podcasts for some fun and entertaining discussions and stories!
