Folakunle Oshun is a Nigerian artist and curator based between Lagos and Berlin. His practice in sculpture engages the relativity of forms and the mapping of orbits and obscure spaces. With most of his creations evolving from clay, he embraces limitless possibilities and fluidity in the use of materials—making room for unprecedented possibilities in his practice.

 

He holds a bachelor's degree in Visual Arts with a major in Sculpture (2007) and a Master's degree in Art History (2012) from the University of Lagos. He is the founder and director of the Lagos Biennial.

 

In 2017 he was selected as the first recipient of the Curator in residence grant by the Potsdam City Council, Brandenburg, Germany. He is currently a visiting Curator at the Pinakothek der Moderne museum in Munich.
