Odutayo Ayomide

Odutayo Ayomide, born on February 4, 2001, is a promising visual artist who hails from Lagos, Nigeria, where he currently resides and creates his art.

His creative journey is deeply rooted in the people and experiences of the vibrant black community that surrounds him. Through his art, Odutayo seeks to capture and convey the unique responses and resilience of these individuals in the face of life's challenges.

His artistic influences span various creative realms, including music, literature, painting, and sculpture. Visionaries like Jean Michel Basquiat, iconic musicians like Wizkid and Jay Z, and literary luminaries like Chimamanda Adiche have left an indelible mark on his creative process and style.

Odutayo's artworks are characterized by texture, a distinctive quality that sets his pieces apart. To achieve this texture and depth, he prefers working with acrylic paints, which offer the advantage of quick drying, allowing him to build up layers of expression rapidly.

As a self-taught artist, Odutayo's talent and dedication have already found recognition, with his works gracing private collections across Europe and America. His journey as an emerging artist promises to bring fresh perspectives and evocative narratives to the global art scene.
