          Born in 1993 in Toronto, Canada, to Nigerian parents,  Sigma Foxx (Ayo Alade) is a self-taught multidisciplinary artist who specializes in conceptual and surreal photography . Back in 2009, while looking for a phone charger in his mother's bedroom, Sigma found a Nikon D60 and immediately fell in love. After years of constant YouTube tutorials and practice, he started to take photography more seriously, taking photographs of buildings, flowers, and people. Always in search of more potent ways to convert his thoughts and ideas into measured blends of both the familiar and the distant, he would come to embrace conceptual and surreal photography as the perfect art form. Sigma always wanted observers to feel the wind in his art. After 6 years of diligent practice, he started to enter group art exhibitions, which then led to his first solo exhibition in April 2016 followed by his second solo exhibition in August 2017. Sigma's influences are Salvador Dali, Jean Michel Basquiat, and Pablo Picasso. Sigma is also a musician on the come up and he names Stromae, Tyler the Creator, Kanye West, and Fela Kuti amongst his favorite musical influences. Sigma’s sound is a fusion of 70’s afrobeat, Jazz, hip hop, and dance. Following his release of 2 high-quality self-produced singles (“Traitor” and “Numero Uno”) in 2017, Sigma impressed a talent scout and was asked to open at Flavor N’abania’s “Ijele -The Traveler tour”. This opportunity was what sparked his desire to take his music to the next level. Sigma currently resides in Toronto and he is working on his debut EP.
