Dapo Alade

I’ve often wondered what it would be like to see the world through the eyes of an artist. Are they born with insight – an ability to capture a glimpse of truth? Or are they conditioned through experience, as many of us are, to develop and channel ordinary talents? Perhaps both. Let me introduce you to Dapo Alade, his experience and his art. You decide for yourself.


Dapo Alade


Many highly creative people cannot limit their expression to a single canvass and Dapo is one of them. His passions extend beyond visual arts to peace efforts, forums designed to predict the Mayan calendar of 2012 and matters of our spiritual nature. It should come as no surprise that I met Dapo on a spiritual network of people studying A Course in Miracles. These efforts are Dapo’s output. So what then is the input, the source of these efforts?


To start with, that beautiful word “diversification”. Dapo is African, so his life experience and art experience started in Africa, extended to Europe and finally reached to the US (currently Atlanta GA). Dapo has over 30 years experience in advertising and marketing with visual communication skills including audiovisual, photography and illustrative drawings.


Art is communication. In the private esoteric world of the artist, art is a chat about the nature of reality; one’s perception of truth. However, in the public world of commerce, the chat is purely and simply about “persuasion”. Dapo’s global perspective, international experience and people skills allow him to be a master in both worlds; a rare talent.


So if you’re in the market to invest in art, engage a highly experienced artist in an existing commercial project or create a new and exciting project that needs the perspective of an artist, Dapo would like to meet you.
