About The Artist:

Asiru Olatunde was born in the Ibadan village in western Nigeria in 1918. He studied at the University of Ibadan, a school for the performing and creative arts. Trained as a blacksmith, Olatunde began to make jewelry in the early 1960s. Later, he expanded his scale, and becan creating larger pieces out of hammered sheets of copper and aluminum. Olatunde was a master in working recycled aluminum and many of his students went on to win international prizes.

To make his metal pieces, Olatunde would take a sheet of metal, and first draw a design on the reverse. He would then hammer out specific areas, creating a scene that would appear raised in relief on the front. Olatunde often created artworks based on scenes from the Bible, including the Garden of Eden, which this example illustrates.

The artist has exhibited at the International Monetary Fund in Washington, D.C., and at the John Martin Gallery in London, United Kingdom. His work is included in the collection of the Smithsonian Institute. He died in 1993.
