Olawale Kolawole based in Nigeria studied Electrical and Electronics Engineering at the University of Ibadan. His style is easily recognizable through his depiction of tiger’s stripes on the skin. This portrays the strength and resilience that is within us all through tigers. This resilience of tigers is a celebration of the unique identity of black people. ‘Just like human finger prints, no two tigers have the same stripes.’ Kolawole explores the ideas of wealth and luxury by using fur as the symbolic entity. He believes that black people need to be heard and seen in every sector around the globe, especially for the uniqueness they bring. Kolawole’s works can be found in private collections in North America, Europe, and Africa.
