Ayegbayo's love affair with creating portraits of powerful African women continues in "Free But Hungry."

"Free But Hungry" is a medley of colors through visible brushstrokes that represent a beautiful stoic young woman as she stares at the world. It is one of those pieces one can find themselves staring at for hours.

About The Artist

Damola Ayegbayo is a Nigerian artist born to a teacher and a farmer in 1988. Inspired by his grandfather, who was a painter and a sculptor, Ayegbayo became interested in art at a young age. After graduating from university, he knew that he wanted to become an artist full-time. 

Ayegbayo’s style of painting is known as ÀBÈFÉ, which is an expressionist style of art that means “pleaded to be loved” in the artist’s native language. Many of his paintings feature strong black women painted in vibrant colors to create something that is meaningful and attractive. 

“The concept of using black women is a reference to my loving mother and the role other women have played in my life. An image of a black beautiful woman always reminds me of how my strong mother trained and brought me up with love and good morals. She helped me discover my real self,” he says.
