dele jẹgẹdẹ: thoughts on my work

As an art historian, my work attempts to disrupt the canonical imbalance in the historicization of texts by privileging the African and African-­American perspective. As a painter, I employ a variety of media to inveigh against economic constructs that perpetuate the subaltern condition of the underclass. As a cartoonist, I drench acerbic issues in palatable coats for public consumption, and often at the expense of the powerful. As a teacher, I relished motivating my students to be respectful of the essence of divergency even as they sought to contribute to knowledge. My work attempts to rupture the boundaries that are installed in the way that we construct and affirm self-hood.
