- About this Gambian African Artist -

Born in 1968, from the Yoruba in Ado-Ekiti Nigeria, Olumide discovered his love of art at a young age of six, through some of his relatives and later, his professors. 

Following his natural artistic instinct he acquired techniques and preferences which he relates through his works. After 20 years as Visual Art Teacher and Instructor, Olumide returned to his easel and brushes on a full time basis. His personality is a big part of his work. He says that whenever he starts on a new painting, he embarks on a personal journey through a host of emotions, all carefully considered and expressed through colors, textures and forms.


  • Bachelor of Arts and Education - Fine Art (B.A.Ed) from the Federal University of Education , Ondo, Nigeria. 1991

  • Masters in Divinity (M.Div) in 2012 

  • A Doctoral Degree in Expository Communication (D.ExCom) all on Scholarship from The Faith Seminary Tacoma, Washington, USA.  2017
