Yung Yemi - Ascension Tech

By creating an afro-futurist world populated with compelling and unique characters, Adegbesan aims to showcase the power of embracing one’s own history, and shines a spotlight on ancient symbols and narratives that have been systematically altered and withheld from black communities.

The characters in Adegbesan’s universe represent individuals who have channeled ancestral guidance, and a rich and abundant legacy in order to find the key to spiritual ascension. They are mobilized by their heritage and practices, and their sacred adornments serve as an essential technology which aids them in their ascension.

Adeyemi Adegbesan is a Nigerian Canadian artist who creates digital and mixed media work. His artwork has been exhibited in Canada and the United States, and has been featured by media outlets such as AfroPunk, Vice, and CBC. He has also collaborated with brands including Instagram, the Toronto Raptors, and Uninterrupted.
