Art by Oluwatobiloba Fasalejoportrait of painter Oluwatobiloba Fasalejo in front of his artwork

The visual artist and storyteller Oluwatobiloba Fasalejo is the very first gallery artist who is an acrylic painter. Now, in our gallery you can get three of his acrylic artworks on canvas – original and hand signed. As a Nigerian-based painter, 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. 


“It’s me chilling with a python snake around my neck.
Sounds wild, right? But there’s this weird sense of calm between us.


MOTHER is a 61 x 76.2 cm acrylic artwork on canvas which symbolizes the artist’s mother’s comfort. The snake, usually a symbol of fear, feels more like a protective hug for him. It’s like having a motherly presence, keeping Fasalejo safe and cozy. It just goes to show, comfort can come from the most unexpected places. Even the things we fear can end up being our biggest source of peace.
