Born in Nigeria in 1959, Tola Wewe worked as a cartoonist before becoming a full time studio artist in 1991. The bright colors of traditional African art are immediately clear to the eye in Wewe’s work, and African totems, symbols and masks run through it. Wewe once described his role in the creative process as that of a messenger, "communicating with the spirits of the ancestors, and drawing out the invisible spirits - the anjonnu, emere and the ebora - who make the art works…I am the vehicle, and they are the drivers. We go on these strange journeys to the most remote ends of imaginative experience.”
