Lola Labet

Location: East London

Lola Betiku – better known by the moniker ‘labet’ is a self-taught Nigerian-British visual artist whose works have hugely been influenced by movements such as Expressionism and Fauvism.

Labet draws influence from her rich Nigerian heritage and explores themes within feminine identity and cultural pride. Acrylic on canvas has been her main choice of medium in creating her deeply expressive works, with particular focus on her use of vibrant colours, bold patterns and multiple textures.

Passionate about current affairs, fashion, literature, music and travel, labet uses each avenue as a stimulus to create positive cultural representations with her paintings and illustrations.
