Mobolaji Ogunrosoye is a conceptual artist born in Lagos, Nigeria. She uses Collage and Photography to explore ideas around distortion of perception using found and captured images of (West) African women on the continent and the diaspora.
In 2018, Mobolaji held her first solo exhibition titled Loose Woman curated by A White Space Creative Agency. She was awarded an inaugural virtual residency at Window, Winnipeg in 2020, which gave her the space to reinterpret digital and analog collage as a harmonized medium. During the residency, her practice evolved and she produced a photographic series centered on distortion and the portrayal of the female body in contemporary African society. Mobolaji was selected as a finalist for the Art X prize, 2021.
