Jadé Fadojutimi (b. 1993, London, UK) lives and works in London, UK. Fadojutimi’s painting practice interrogates the construction and constraints of identity, whilst offering a space for individual liberation. Responding to personal experience, she layers veils of colour with rhythmic, gestural brushstrokes and at times scrapes the paint back, building exhilarating, immersive environments where forms on the cusp of recognition dissolve into abstraction. Recent and upcoming exhibitions include Taka Ishii Gallery, Tokyo (2020); Pippy Houldsworth Gallery, UK (2020, 2017); PEER, UK (2019); and Galerie Gisela Capitain, Germany (2019).
