Jadé Fadojutimi

Born 1993

Jadé Fadojutimi is a painter whose work falls somewhere in the middle of the spectrum between abstraction and figuration. Her work is gestural and physical, she often dances whilst painting. She sees painting as a way of communicating with the world, much like a language, and finds ways of expressing her thoughts and feelings not possible through words alone. The exploration of self also plays a large part in her practice and memories both bad and good are worked out through her paintings.

She achieved a BA at the Slade School of Fine Art and then a Masters at the Royal college of Art and in 2017 she won the Hine Painting prize. Her work is held in private and public collections nationally and internationally. She is the youngest artist in the Tate collection.
