Movement: African Art, Figurative, Contemporary

Olamide Ogunade Born in 1996, Olamide Ogunade is a graduate of Fine Art at the Yaba College of Technology, from Ogun State, based in Surulere, Lagos, Nigeria. Drawing inspiration from personal experiences, and happenings in his society, Olamide creates works that promote the understanding of black identity. His oeuvre cuts across various mediums including ballpoint pen, acrylic and oil paint, charcoal, and pencil. Even though his fascination with art began when he was a little child, Ogunade’s artistic development over the years can be traced to his rigorous training, research, and practice. His creation process takes a lot of time as it requires patience and persistence making a mere shading come to life and almost impossible to believe it was created by hand. There is great coherence in the work of Olamide Ogunade , which is expressed essentially through the art of portraiture. As a leitmotiv that would come somewhat shaken up by reality, bubbles constantly surround the characters to whom the artist gives a lot of strength and distinction.The mixture of techniques, too, greatly enriches the texture of his large scale works. Olamide has participated in several exhibitions including Stop, Listen at the CFHILL gallery, Sweden, Afrika First at the Valerius gallery, Luxembourg, and won the Tecno Art challenge 2020. By late 2020, His works began to be collected officially by art collectors from different countries. His works also has good sales record at the Artcurial Auction in France 2022.
