Meet Ade with the wave, visual artist making surreal album art through experimental visuals

The more original a piece of art, the more it grabs our attention, if there was ever a saturated market of music album art we praise creatives who subvert the obvious choices in imagery and style. One clear example is seen in the work of Ade with the wave.
We had an interview with him about art, music and trends.

Hey, Ade… What’s your name about? 
My name Adewiththewave came about around 2015, people always say my art is wavy and it brings so many meaning so I just went along with the waves
Tell about more about you
I’m a student at Canadian Mennonite University, a freelance designer.
Why Graphic Design?
like many other designers I started studying graphic design without fully understanding what it entails by myself, I always knew in me that art is my passion. I started to create brand logos, posters, and merchandise, redesign the tickets, and  this was the only way. when it was wells received I decided it wouldn’t be a bad job, my journey has been great but admittedly a little niche. I knew from the start I would enjoy the fast pace and intimate working .
How long have you been doing this?
I’ve been doing this for 6 years now .
Is your work specific to a particular audience?
No, everyone can relate to my art but what I do know is I get more audience from few countries. South Africa and Nigeria are the highest crowd I pull so far.
Tell us about some of the projects you’ve been working on
I have been working on a lot album art, flyers for A-reece record label (TWC) which they use for tour, it’s been good working with them for two years now. I also worked on two artworks for novels last month .
Do you feel a particular direction to which visual art is headed in the nearest future?
I figured out still pictures are not going to be here for ever, motion pictures are going to be more useful in the future to come and it’s going to be wild, I already see my future also .

Any words of wisdom for young artists?
Yeah I feel While you certainly want to promote your brands and services in a positive light, you also need to be willing to put yourself in the shoes of your target customers as often as possible. Chances are they don’t know much (if anything) about your brand or understand the benefits you offer nearly as well as you do.
By seeing your brand through new eyes, you can also look for potential weaknesses, areas of potential misuse or misunderstanding, and even things that consumers may object to or find offensive. Taking this step better allows you to create marketing messages and campaigns that fully address possible brand concerns and objections before they occur.
