Jibola Fagbamiye

His work in the comic industry started with the self-published Dante: Last son of the Apocalypse, he also wrote and drew Arash: The Swift Arrow for the Tirgan Festival. His work draws inspiration from his two great loves: African history and North American pop culture. He uses a hybrid of digital design and traditional painting with influences of propaganda poster art, pop art and graphic novels to celebrate that history while inviting viewers to question their presumptions on consumerism, culture and normality.

Jibola has exhibited in galleries in Toronto, Miami, New York and Lagos, and his work has been featured on AfroPunk, Toronto Life, Kobrini, CP24 and BlogTO.
