About The Artist

Jummie Adebiyi

Jummie Adebiyi

I am a 19 year old Nigerian Artist based in South London. I've been drawing since I was a child, constantly reinforced by a family full of creatives who have facilitated my experimentation and artistic exploration.

My art is a creative expression of how I see the world and the things that fascinate me. For the most part my subjects are usually people of colour because I identify most with them. Representation of my people and culture is also extremely important to me because growing up the standard of beauty was primarily eurocentric. In recent years with the rise of social media platforms such as Instagram and Twitter there has been a growing acceptance of different forms of beauty. My work reflects this acceptance of self by focusing on the beauty in afrocentric features and I want to share that with others.

My hope is that in my work you can see yourself, black, beautiful and proud in all forms!
