Adekunle Gold Shows Off Artistic Side In Amazing New Portraits By TY Bello




Popular photographer, songwriter and
singer, TY Bello has shared lovely new
portraits of singer/songwriter, Adekunle
Gold looking rather artsy in Adire
clothing and gold styled metal pieces
adorning his body.

The Green Land singer shared the
photos on her Instagram page while
recounting how Adekunle and her were
able to come up with the concept for
the shoot titled, 'ADEKUNLE GOLD :
BECOMING KING' and execute it nicely.

She wrote:

ADEKUNLE GOLD : BECOMING KING
I'm looking forward to attending his
coronation .. I got to hear unreleased
music while I made his portraits . …
Nothing quite like his sound .. He's the
real deal…!He's about to be crowned
and I'm certain.
Im a song writer myself ..so I can tell…
Nigeria and indeed the world are about
to discover their new favorite genius …
One day I'll be boasting about how I
heard those songs before they came
out .. The idea for @adekunlegold 's
portraits came two days before he
called me . I had just read about
Bezaleel on Exodus 31 .. And how God
gave him creative genius to work with
Gold , silver and bronze .

I had made some art images that
emotionally said everything I wanted
but just never felt quite right …
Bezaleel's work spoke to me .. My work
was missing some metal .So I began to
study the use of metal in sculpture and
design ….how to bring that into my
work

I was trying to figure out which of my
artist friends I'd like to collaborate with
when Adekunle Gold's messages
started flooding in . .. He sent me
photographs of designs and concepts
with gold elements and asked me what
I thought … I just smiled .. God had
gifted me beautiful work and had taken
time to prepare me .
I tried to stay calm as I started going on
about how I was tying to decode
Exodus 31 and bring it into
my work .. And roughly described some
ideas that I had for his album art .. I
didn't need to say much more .. He was
completely in .

I collaborated with Sobukola
Oluwanisola , an artist friend of mine
and we decided on using recycled
metal built into crowns and
deconstructed as pieces for the
portraits .
So here are our portraits Rustic and
futuristic .. Our Adire clad .. King
explorer ..Ready to launch !!
