The visual artist and storyteller Oluwatobiloba Fasalejo is our very first painter. In our gallery you can now buy three of his expressive artworks on canvas. As a Nigerian-based artist his artistic journey is a deliberate fusion of African heritage and contemporary expression. Through the vibrant strokes of oil and acrylic, Fasalejo’s work illuminates themes of resilience and adaptability, with each canvas bearing faces that embody the enduring spirit of African and black communities. Influenced by the fading memories of his grandmother, Fasalejo’s art captures the ephemeral nature of memory, enriched by tribal marks that serve as a profound connection to his roots. Fasalejo’s art, blending personal narrative with cultural identity, emerges as a distinctive voice in contemporary art, inviting viewers to explore the intricate layers of his heritage through each brushstroke. 


“Having a brother is like having a lifelong partner in crime,
and I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world.


YOU ARE ONE BEST THING I HAVE GOT (No. 1) is an acrylic art piece on canvas. For Fasalejo having a brother is the best thing in the world. He is telling about this feeling in his paintings by creating a 61 by 76 cm portrait of his brother. According to the artist, brothers are always there for you. They are making you laugh, backing you up, and just being a solid presence in your life. Furthermore, brothers understand you like no one else and are your biggest cheerleader when it comes to chasing your dreams. Especially when times get tough, they are the ones who provide that sense of comfort and security that you cannot find anywhere else. Sure, they can be a pain sometimes, says Fasalejo. Deep down though, you know that you have got the brother’s back – no matter what.
