The inspiration behind his art lies in the prejudice and culture orientation in the Nigerian society attributed to the emotional, physical, and psychological aspects of the modern day woman.
He voices his thoughts and appreciation on how beautiful the female figure is through visual representation.
Adeshope creates his art pieces with materials such as acrylic, charcoal, ink, and occasionally, a simple pen and paper.
