Jibola Fagbamiye is a multimedia Nigerian artist living in Toronto. His work draws inspiration from his two great loves: African history and North American pop culture. He uses a hybrid of digital design and traditional painting with influences of propaganda poster art, pop art and graphic novels to celebrate that history while inviting viewers to question their presumptions on consumerism, culture and normality.

Jibola has exhibited in galleries in Toronto, Miami, New York and Lagos, and was recently featured on CP24.   You can find his work, and request commissions on his website.
