He conflates memory, family history and cultural iconography to create images that have a figurative core but are completed with colorful abstract gestures and patterns. According to Ikhide, the works in MythMaking represent his desire to make coherent his inner psychic reality, and as that is a murky and mystical endeavor, the works inevitably are comprised of abstract gestures and marks.

Richard Ayodeji Ikhide (b. 1991, Nigeria,) earned a BA in textile design at Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts, London (2014) and Postgraduate Diploma at The Royal Drawing School, London (2017). He has had solo exhibitions at the Zabludowicz Collection, London (2019) and V.O. Curations, London (2021). MythMaking is his second solo exhibition at Steve Turner.
