Gbenga Adeku

A fine arts graduate, Gbenga left his career as a graphic designer to become an upcycling artist.

He felt guilty as everyone else for the trashes going to landfills and started his work in 2015 with several waste materials. In 2019 he started creating arts from the plastic bottles.

Adeku obtains PET bottles and beverage cans from women in the community and converts them into art pieces for educational and awareness-building purposes.

Now with his artworks he is raising awareness through art.
