Tolu Aliki

B. 1976


Tolu is a contemporary figurative artist, born and raised in Nigeria.
Born on the 7th of February, 1976, Aliki has been a gifted artist
from a young age. As an emerging artist, he discovered his distinct
style and fondness for painting deeply personal subject matters.
Borne out of love for the Arts, and that innate desire to express
himself, he began his journey towards becoming a professional oil
pastel, and acrylic painter through self training.

He began to exhibit his works steadily. His stylized figurative
compositions and landscape subjects drew attention from
established artists, art collectors, and art galleries around the world,
which immediately propelled Aliki to national recognition as a
leading contemporary master painter, while his career grew and
moved him into the celebrated realm of solo exhibitions in Lagos,
Nigeria, and in Lisbon, Portugal.

Most of his works have found its greatest expression when
addressing the concept of passion; Love, music, family and
everyday social interactions.

His works exhibit a high standard of understanding and application
of colours, depth of content and aesthetic beauty.
The uniqueness and originality of his work gives them the flair and
authenticity no art lover could resist.
