Sola Olulode’s dreamy queer visions explore embodiments of British Black Womxn and Non-Binary Folx. Working with various mediums of natural dyeing, batik, wax, ink, pastel, oil bar, and impasto, she develops textural canvases that explore the fluidities of identities. Drawing inspiration from lived experience, friends, and cultural reference points to centre Black Queer Womxn, Olulode emphasises the integral need of representation and celebration of queer intimacies.
Olulode received a BA in Fine Art Painting from the University of Brighton in 2018, since then, the artist has had solo shows at venues including von Goetz, London; Lewisham Arthouse, London; VO Curations, London; and the Victoria & Albert Museum, London.
