Tunde Afolayan Famous
Famous, a Nigerian- born artist, is considered one of the most prolific African contemporary artists. Exploring color as the basis of painting, he infuses spiritualism and symbolism in his powerful, lyrical expressions.
His thematic compositions, imbued with vibrant colors, allow figurative images to adopt expressive, abstract qualities as well as representational styles. Famous' color palette, tempered with strong hues, exemplifies his African aesthetics and sensibilities.
Famous' paintings have been exhibited in galleries and museums in Nigeria, Europe and the United States.
