Biography / CV of Ebitenyefa BaralayeEbitenyefa Baralaye was born in Lagos, Nigeria, spent his early childhood living in the Caribbean and later moved to the United States. In the US he discovered an early affinity for drawing that was soon supported by the admiration and study of a range of master artists from Michelangelo to Picasso. He was later introduced to sculpture making through interests in clay hand-building which eventually led to his study of ceramics at the Rhode Island School of Design and Peters Valley Crafts Center.

Artist Statement of Ebitenyefa BaralayeI create objects to capture and evoke the layered immaterial elements affecting humanity, existence and personal identity. I focus on abstraction as the mode of expression in my work because of its universal diversity and potential for drawing associations of deep subjective specificity. I source and collage a range of mediums and influences directed loosely by my governing concerns and impulses. Through the techniques of sculpting, assembling and layering/blending I aim to create faithful translations, in physical form, of the arrayed output of my mental and emotional perspectives.
