Mofoluso Eludire (b. 1997) obtained a bachelor’s degree in fine and applied arts from Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, and now works In Lagos. She has exhibited in numerous shows.
Her works are strongly influenced by emotions with great emphasis on the facial expressions and body language that come to life on her canvas. Currently, she aims to capture scenes where nothing much appears to be happening but which speak volumes about our individual and collective humanity. Responding to personal experience, she layers colour with a rhythmic, gestural palette knife while showcasing her childhood prepossessions, and heritage.
Mofoluso’s works attempt to create narratives that speak to the black female experience. Her practice interrogates the construction and constraints of identity, whilst offering a space for individual liberation. Her subjects are unapologetic black women who at times gaze directly at the viewer. This focus on black women urges viewers to see black women for who they really are and to consider their humanity.
