Biography

Tobi Alexandra Falade (b.1995, Nigeria) is a Nigerian-British visual artist creating original paintings, prints and sculptures, engaging with narratives of modern Black British life and dialogues with African and Postcolonial contexts. Her oil paintings are created using methods of collaging - assimilating images from family archives and her own photography - in order to build new narratives. Her distinctive manipulation of materials and the techniques she adopts to approach these themes, allow her to join worlds together and tell her personal story from the point of view of a Black British Nigerian woman through her work. She has recently been awarded The Space Artists Award (2021), The Very Special Fund, a grant by Hennessy in partnership with gal-dem (2021), The Koppel Project Campus Summer Scholarship (2020), and Hottinger Prize for Excellence, FBA Futures (2020). Tobi lives and works in Liverpool and London.
