Jibola Fagbamiye is a multimedia Nigerian artist who currently lives and works in Toronto, Ontario. He uses a wide range of media (oil, charcoal, acrylic, digital painting, 3D modeling, silk-screening) to layer multiple textures, drawing inspiration from African history and North American pop culture movement. His work is considered digital design and traditional painting with influences of Afro Cuban propaganda poster art and graphic novels. He uses a hybrid of graphic design, illustration and painting to create a subversive style that fuses historic pop imagery and contemporary cultural iconography to create his version of pop art. Using familiar imagery of cultural icons to celebrate history and also to present a reflection on society, inviting viewers to question their presumptions on consumerism, culture and normality.

Jibola has exhibited in multiple galleries in Toronto and his work was recently featured on CP24.   He’s influenced by artist like Sheppard Fiery, Roy Lichtenstein, Frank Miller and Andy Warhol.
