Olamide Ogunade Nigerian, b. 1996

Overview

Fusing bold colours and prints to convey a uniquely West African identity, Nigerian artist Olamide Ogunade Olisco uses the canvas to open discourses around individualism, beauty and race. 

Ogunade Olisco's use of charcoal, juxtaposed by the vibrancy of the surrounding colour palette, lends an animated luminosity to the depiction of the human form. Ever-present is a delicate, sympathetic approach to the treatment of his subjects, imbuing them with a graceful elegance that is exceptionally emotive.

 

Olamide Ogunade Olisco (b. 1996, Ogun State, Nigeria) studied Fine Art at Yaba College of Technology in Lagos, Nigeria. He has exhibited in several group exhibitions in Lagos and Ogun state, and his works have been featured in international group exhibitions, including the Afrika First Exhibition in Luxembourg; Stop, Listen group exhibition at CFHILL Gallery, Sweden and Polychromatic (2021) at Daniel Raphael Gallery. Ogunade Olisco’s work is in private collections in Burkina Faso, Austria, USA, Germany, France and Sweden.
