Damilola is very prolific and produces his art straight to paper from images in his head. Quirky and exquisite detailed are the hallmarks of his signature artworks. This pen and ink drawing on coffee comes framed.
As a craftsman, Damilola attaches prime importance to process and method. He explores all avenues of the arts, working on ideas big and small, and setting himself to master drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking, spray-painting and mixed-media work. His world is populated by an eclectic fauna of pets and wild animals, minutely detailed cityscapes, re-appropriated found objects and small characters in their playful vignettes. His guiding principle is accessibility and just like his iconic character, his work often purports itself to be ageless, raceless and genderless. Oscillating between intimate box-like formats and larger scale painterly figurations and abstractions, Damilola demonstrates the versatility of a multi-media illustrator, graphic artist, storyteller, painter and all-round art-creator.
