Sola Olulode (b.1996, UK) is a visual artist whose figurative paintings portray a nuanced and tender vision of relationships and intimacy.
Sola aims to overlay, deepen, and reflect the identities of the black womxn she depicts rather than simplify and register them as a “subject”. Through colour and painterly brushwork, Sola's dexterous
hand employs a range of media: indigo and other natural dyes, wax, oil bar, and impasto lashings of paint. Sola lives and works in London, UK.
