British-Nigerian Artist Jade Fadojutimi Now Represented By Top Global Gallery, Gagosian

29-year-old British Nigerian artist Jade Fadojutimi is one of the latest and finest artists to be represented by Gagosian, a world-leading art gallery.

Fadojutimi is an abstractionist that has garnered renown in the past couple years, putting out works inspired by a wide range of concepts including things like Japanese Anime, music or nature. “Human. Animals. Natural. We all have souls; objects too. We are all beautiful, and that is what is encapsulated by the word life,” she says about her work. 

Gagosian will host Fadojutimi’s first presentation in October at the gallery’s Frieze London booth.

Although leaving her London gallery, the Pippy Houldsworth, which gave her a platform for her first solo show back in 2017, she will still be co-represented by Cologne’s Galerie Gisela Captain and Tokyo’s Taka Ishii Gallery. 

It is not surprising to see Fadojutimi represented by the big shot Gagosian. Last October, her works were sold on two consecutive nights, and both sales set new records for her career. The first sale happened on Sotheby’s day; A painting titled A Muddled Mind That’s Never Confined was sold for £1 million ($1.4 million). The following day was her second sale; she sold another painting, Myths of Pleasure, for £1.2 million ($1.6 million).

Fadojutimi attended the Royal College of Art, where she had an MA. She graduated in 2017. Then, for the next three years, she exhibited her artworks worldwide in places like Liverpool Biennale, Japan, and ICA Miami. She has proven that she is a name to look out for in the international art scene. 

Milicent Wilner, the senior director at Gagosian, spoke about Fadojutimi’s talent. He said, “We have followed Jadé and her expressive, expansive practice with interest and admiration and are excited to play a part in her future story.”
