Yomi Momoh

Yomi Momoh was born 1964 in Nigeria. He attended Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria graduating in 1989.

He has since then worked as both a sculptor and painter. He sculpts in wood and fibre glass and paints in acrylic and oil. While his media may vary, his style is unmistakable, relying on simplicity in form and colour to create strong visual images of everyday Nigeria.

He has become a painter and sculptor of wistful Nigerian landscapes and people. The easy innocence of his scenes provide a backdrop for the exploration of the cultures and people he comes in contact with daily.

Momoh has lived and worked in Lagos, Accra and Ibadan.
