Samuel Olayombo

Nigerian B. 1991

Born in Lagos State in 1991. His passion for painting started when he was in the senior secondary school. Samuel received his BFA at the University of Benin in Edo State in 2015. Samuel is interested in everyday human experience. His predominant character is the female figure with exaggerated long hair. He is not simply painting, but he hopes his paintings gives the viewer a feeling of optimism through his canvases colour, draughtsmanship, tone, drippings and writings. Propelled by a strong passion to provoke thoughts through his creativity, the adventure has taken him through multiple creative phases as a landscape, still life, and figure composition. He is a full time studio artist. He lives and work in Lagos.
