About Toyin Ojih Odutola

Toyin Ojih Odutola’s solo exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art, “To Wander Determined,” opened in October 2017, and showcases the Nigerian-American artist’s layered and emotionally powerful portraits. Toyin established herself in the art world with drawings of black subjects—often self-portraits—rendered in fluid lines of black pen with bright splashes of colored marker, which garnered high praise from Elle and Artforum. In a November 2017 interview with Juxtapoz, she discussed her goal to reveal the beauty and sensuality in skin while provoking viewers to reconsider notions of identity. Toyin’s 50K+ Instagram followers can do just that, checking in on images of her work, along with people and places that inspire it.
