Artist talk: Mosaic Project artist Toyin Odutola
Forbes magazine featured Toyin Odutola in its 2012 list of 30 notable individuals under 30 in the category “Art & Style” [Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toyin_Odutola]. She is a contemporary artist who focuses on identity and the sociopolitical concept of skin color through her pen and ink drawings. Her work explores her personal journey of having been born in Nigeria then moving to the U.S. and assimilating into American culture. A recent graduate of the California College of Arts MFA program (2012), Odutula’s work is already in major museum collections including the Birmingham Museum of Art, AL and The National Museum of African Art, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C. She is represented by the Jack Shainman Gallery in New York City.
