Sola Olulode


Sola's paintings are a look into the lives of Black women, in particular looking at when Black women and femmes discover their sense of self. The works document this exploration of sexuality, relationships and individuality through the form of figure painting. Her paintings have been deeply influenced by the culture and community that surrounds her life. Sola wants to project in her paintings something that black women and black femmes can relate to and see the complexities of their identities reflected in.

Sola was shortlisted for the 2018 Evening Standard Art Prize.
