Bolaji Ogunwo (35)

With a BA Hons in Fine Art from the University of Benin (2000) and an MA in Fine Art from the University of Lagos (2006), He bagged a Ph.D. in Painting from Delta State University, Abraka (2020). He is currently a studio artist and a Painting Lecturer at the Department of Creative Arts, University of Lagos, Akoka. Bolaji Ogunwo has developed his own unique and highly popular style of oil painting. Using the Impasto style, where the paint is laid on an area of the surface very thickly, thick enough that the brush or painting-knife strokes are visible, Bolaji creates these images of Nigerian cultural life, mixing his colors right there on the canvas.
