The Art Exhibition which commenced on 1st February will run up till 29th March 2018 at The Historic Ali Cultural Arts, Pompano Beach, Florida.

Wale, short for Adewale, began his craft from Nigeria as a cartoonist and before then studied at Yaba College of Technology, Lagos Nigeria that has churned out great Nigerian artists, an institution from where he obtained his undergraduate degree in Studio Art. He received an M.A degree in Museum Studies from Southern University in New Orleans and MFA in 2D Studio Art (Painting/Drawing) from Miami University, Oxford, Ohio.

Adewale’s exhibition showcases Black History portraits and paintings which makes him a visual storyteller and rightly so, this exhibition fits in nicely with Black History Month celebration throughout the month and beyond. A must see.
