London Map Abstract

Damilola Odusote, 2020        

Pen & ink on paper framed

Size: W50 x H50 x D4.5cm

From humble beginnings copying comics in the playground in Tilbury Essex, Damilola's art has evolved as he has become successful in web design, graphic design, dance, fashion, illustration, and fine art. Since moving to London, the city buzz provides him with ‘ammunition’ for his art. Damilola is very prolific and produces his art straight to paper from images in his head. Quirky and exquisite details are the hallmarks of his signature artworks, as are his incorporations of unusual materials into his works.

London Map Abstract shows off Damilola's incredibly intricate drawing skills and innovative presentation. He seamlessly blends the city's cornucopia of landmarks and distinctive features into a representation of a bustling, energetic metropolis that is London. He has also drawn separately on the mount board to give an additional dimension which you can either frame directly next to the drawing for a flatter presentation or set forward to give the work more depth. You also have the option of removing the mount board to reveal the coloured drawing underneath the mount.

Artist Damilola OdusoteArtist: Damilola Odusote

A degree in illustration at Camberwell College of Arts gave Damilola the strong technical basis on which to base his artistic explorations. Multifaceted and multitalented, Damilola draws inspiration from everywhere and everything, not least in his parallel career as a professional dancer which he likens to his artistic practice as similarly requiring technique, training, research and expressivity, and where movement feeds creation.

As a craftsman, Damilola attaches prime importance to process and method. He explores all avenues of the arts, working on ideas big and small, and setting himself to master drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking, spray-painting and mixed-media work. His world is populated by an eclectic fauna of pets and wild animals, minutely detailed cityscapes, re-appropriated found objects and small characters in their playful vignettes. His guiding principle is accessibility and just like his iconic character, his work often purports itself to be ageless, raceless and genderless. Oscillating between intimate box-like formats and larger scale painterly figurations and abstractions, Damilola demonstrates the versatility of a multi-media illustrator, graphic artist, storyteller, painter and all-round art-creator.

Damilola has a loyal client base in Europe, Asia and America. In the last few years Damilola has been in high demand for large scale mural work with commissions from Converse, Gourmet Burger Kitchen, LinkedIn, NEXT, Microsoft, YouTube Space and Google in Kings Cross London.
