Sense of Self is a collection of paintings by Olawunmi Banjo with the exploration of three central themes: accepting self, letting go of the past, and embracing present moments. It is her ode to our life-long journey towards self-realization and actualization, “clarity coming by aligning with the core of our inner being”.
Banjo is a self-taught visual artist with a degree in Creative Entrepreneurship from the Pan-Atlantic University in Lagos, Nigeria. Her hyper-realism style was inspired by exploring surrealistic landscapes which question constructs around physical reality. Banjo paints figures woven together by electrical wires, in acrobatic dance poses, leaping through time and space, propelled by a colorful surge of electric energy.
