About the Item

This painting captures the strength and beauty of a black African girl who gazes directly at the viewer with a thought of total liberation. The use of oil on canvas creates a vibrant and expressive piece that emphasizes the features of her face and highlights the beauty of her African heritage. The white background serves as a powerful metaphor for the potential for change and transformation that lies within each of us. This painting is a celebration of the resilience and determination of people of color in the face of oppression and inequality, and a call to action for all of us to work towards a future of true equality and justice.

About Artist Bakare Babatunde Oluwadamilare was born in Ogun State, Nigeria. He completed his high school education in Lagos State and later pursued his tertiary education in Kwara State, where he obtained a Higher National Diploma in Library and Information Science. From a young age, he had a passion for art and was a self-taught artist. Over the years, he experimented with various mediums, but his favorite mediums are oil and acrylic on canvas and African wax prints in Ankara. His subject matter focuses on figure and portraiture, which aims to portray human emotions, experiences, and challenges. His paintings offer a unique perspective, interpreting his thoughts on canvas and African wax prints in Ankara. Recently, he started working on a series of paintings on Ankara fabrics as support. He was fascinated by the vibrant colors and patterns of the Ankara fabric, which inspired this discovery. He has participated in various art competitions and exhibitions, including the iCreate skill festival in 2017 and the ijakadi festival as an exhibitor. His works have been sold both in Nigeria and abroad, and he continues to create thought-provoking pieces that captivate and inspire his viewers.
