Muraina Oyelami


(Born in 1940, Iragbiji, Nigeria. Lives and works in Nigeria.)

Muraina Oyelami's works are a representation of his experiences, stories, folktales, and landscapes. Known to some as a master painter and by others as a great performing artist, Oyelami is one of the original products of the famous Oshogbo Art Movement, whose works reflect composition and meaning. The themes in Oyelami's work are mainly derived from Yoruba culture. The Yoruba people - their facial features and markings are a particular favourite.

His varied and enormous list of credits include Studio Museum in Harlem, New York; Staatlichen Kunsthalle, Berlin; Museum of African Art, Smithsonian Institute, Washington DC and Institute of Contemporary Arts, London.
