Tomilola Olumide (b. 1996, London) is a Multidisciplinary Artist who documents her personal history and understanding of the world as autobiographical assemblages that reflect complex fabrics of human existence.

Inspired by her upbringing in Lagos, Nigeria and her navigation of life in adulthood, Olumide uses her experiences as memory banks that influence discussions on identity, memory, emotional landscapes, being and materiality. These subjects are portrayed as sculptures, paintings, collages, performance art, site-specific installations, poetry and written musings.

Olumide uses a variety of materials in her practice such as her physical body, personal memorabilia, found objects, textile fabric, paint and dye pigments; as expressions of medium and explorations of memory, intimacy, sensuality and aesthetics between herself and her subjects.

​Tomilola received her Bachelor's degree in Fine Art from the University of Southampton, Winchester School of Art, England. ​

Her recent residencies and exhibitions include Spot VR Residency, Stryx Gallery, (2023), (Algo | Afro) Futures Vivid Projects, (2023), EOP Summer Camp 2023 Show and Micro Residency, Eastside Projects (2023), Beyond Otherness, Open Hand Open Space Gallery (2021), Rest and Repair, Platform Black x UCLH (2021).
