Ade Kipades

Adrian Setterfield aka Ade Kipades

Ade Kipades(artist pseudonym) graduated with a National Diploma in Graphic Design(1987), and worked as a commercial illustrator and ceramist before pursuing his passion in painting and sculpture.

Design, three dimensional form and colour, come naturally to him and he best expresses these in abstract painting and sculpture. Kipades has spent a significant time living abroad informally studying techniques and styles in modern abstract painting.

He has participated in numerous exhibitions and his work can be found in private collections both nationally and abroad.
