Funmilayo Tejumola is an emerging contemporary Nigerian artist (b. 1996), who specializes in Figurative African Art. Born in Ilorin, Kwara State, Nigeria, she is a native of Esie, the home of the largest collection of soapstone images in the world.
As a child of art, she has embraced the pseudonym, Demo Àjo?ké?, a candid reflection of her essence and power as an artist. She expresses the child of care at the heart of the community. This has constantly been her path of growth, both as a member of her community and as an artist, and reflects this in her artistic voice.
She had her training at the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, Nigeria, where she obtained a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Arts, before proceeding to the University of Lagos, to bag her Master's Degree in African and Diaspora Studies. These concentrations have helped her to direct her focus on Africa, the motherland, and even still, on womanhood in Africa.
She believes in the power of the feminine, particularly the African feminine.
