The visual artist and storyteller Oluwatobiloba Fasalejo is our very first gallery artist who is an acrylic painter. Now you can buy three original paintings of his acrylic piece on canvas in our gallery. Nigerian-based, 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 pieces capture 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 a reminder that we all stumble,
but it’s how we bounce back that counts.


WE ALL LOSE SOMETIMES (NO.1) is an acrylic artwork on canvas, 92 cm by 122 cm. This expressive work of art shows a man wearing a female head wrap. He is looking straight at you with his arms crossed. For the painter Fasalejo it is like he is saying, “Yeah, life throws curveballs, but I amm still standing.” His vibe is all about resilience, showing that setbacks do not define us. It is a reminder that we all stumble, but it counts more how we bounce back.
