Tomilola Olumide is a Nigerian Multidisciplinary Artist whose art practice documents her personal history as autobiographical assemblages, alongside her understanding of the world which reflects complex fabrics of human existence inspired by her upbringing in Lagos, Nigeria and her navigation of life in adulthood.

Her experiences become memory banks that influence discussions on identity, memory, emotional landscapes, being and materiality and are portrayed in mixed media experiments, sculpture and site-specific installations, painting, collage, digital art, performance art, poetry and written musings.

Tomilola uses her physical body, found objects, personal memorabilia and materials such as textile fabrics, plaster and paint as expressions of medium and explorations of memory, intimacy, sensuality and aesthetics between herself and subjects in her practice.

Her recent projects and exhibitions include: Spot VR Residency and Wa wọ Exhibition, Stryx Gallery Birmingham (2023), (Algo | Afro) Futures, Vivid Projects, Birmingham (2023), EOP Summer Camp Show and Micro Residency, Eastside Projects, Birmingham (2023), I AM & NOTHING ELSE, Affinity Art Gallery, Lagos (2022), Beyond Otherness, Open Hand Open Space Gallery, Reading (2021), Rest and Repair, Platform Black x UCLH, London (2021).

Tomilola received her Bachelor's degree in Fine Art from the University of Southampton, Winchester School of Art England, where she studied Interdisciplinary art studies and graduated with First Class Honours in 2020.
