Olufemi Oyewole

Olufemi Oyewole, a young and dedicated Artist was born in Lagos on March 23rd 1986 and he has had a fascination with drawing since childhood, a skill he practices constantly, even to this day.

He graduated with distinction from the Federal College of Education, Technical, Akoka, Lagos in 2006 with National Certificate in Education (NCE) in Painting and then later studied Fine and Applied Arts at the Obafemi Awolowo Universith, Ile-Ife, graduating in 2012 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree (BA) in Fine Arts.

During his impressionable creative years after graduating from the college, Olufemi discovered the works of Abiodun Olaku; a master artist who had a positive influence on him and this has influenced hs style.

Olufemi believes his idea for painting comes from everywhere, ladscapes with soft mood, the solitude of an aquatic environment at sunset, or even the story behind a scene. What keeps him exited about painting is his endless quest to simplify and get the essence of whtever he paints.

He has actively participated in many group exhibitions and Auctions both nationally and internationally. Currently, he works at the Universal Studios of Art as a full-time studio artist. He is an active member of the Society of Nigerian Artist (SNA), International Watercolour Society of Nigeria (IWS NIGERIA), Plein Air Society of Nigeria (outdoor landscape painters).

ARTIST’S STATEMENT

I see painting as both a way of exploring the world and then as a vehicle of sharing  the those discoveries with others. As a creative and unique language, painting makes me say things or ideas i can’t express with words.
