Gasali Adeyemo grew up in Ofatedo, Nigeria. He studied for six years at the Nike Center for Arts & Culture and then remained for four years as a teacher. In 1995, his artwork was exhibited in Bayruth, Germany and as a result his artistic career bloomed. A participant in the World Craft Summit, the Maiwa Symposium and the World Batik Conference, Gasali has made it his life’s work to give workshops, presentations and lectures to communicate the beauty of indigo textiles and share the Yoruba culture. Gasali currently resides in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
