Yellow Dot CEO, Olubukola Bolarinde to celebrate African heritage in solo art exhibition
May 22, 2022

Following the release of her 2018 critically acclaimed film ‘Onidiri’, the CEO of Yellow Dot Limited, a leading Creative Curation/Production Company, Olubukola Bolarinde, is set for her solo art exhibition debut tagged ‘106 Expressions’.

The exhibition will be an intimate display of Bolarinde’s artworks inspired by her experiences from childhood that traverse time and culture.

“106 Expressions is a collection of artworks celebrating our African heritage; our people, and our culture. I have drawn inspiration from my experiences as an African child.”

The works transport you to a place and a time, perceived through an African child’s mind. A different time from the times we now live in. As our world continues to evolve, a great number of our children have not and will never have these experiences,” Bolarinde says about her new collection.

“The exhibition is a documentary about “my people, my culture, my land. A distinct fusion of the North and the South, which speaks to and holds true to my identity and diversity.”

Naturally drawn to art in all its forms of expression, Bolarinde has always evinced a passion at an early age. This was demonstrated through her pencil drawings.

Born in Lagos and the second of five children from her parents, Olubukola’s formative years were in the northern part of Nigeria; from Jos to Kaduna and then Zaria. This helped in establishing her unique sense of identity and diversity.
