Art Delivery

Tunji Adeniyi-Jones & Martine Johanna

Welcome to Adele Delivers, where I deliver two of my favorite contemporary artists right to your inbox every Friday. Here’s to fostering a deeper connection with art, one artist at a time.

Tunji Adeniyi-Jones

Tunji uses a monochromatic palette to create sound - a charge and a vibration that gives his bodies room to move. By reducing the figure to shapes, he tells a story about the space they inhabit, one saturated with story. Tunji draws from his Yoruba heritage, West African mythology, and his upbringing in London and now Brooklyn, exploring themes of Black identity. Learn more about Tunji here.

Martine Johanna

If you’ve ever done a guided meditation, chances are you’ve visualized a ball of light inside you and imagined moving it up and out of your body so that your wise self can see you from another perspective. Martine’s self-portraits are like this but instead of a ball of light, POOF! It’s a Chihuahua or POOF! Grief has become a bowling ball - a balanced blend of life’s absurdity and achingly genuine human emotion. Learn more about Martine here.
