Damola’s artistic representations show an influence from the African masters as well as European modern art. His impressions particularly portray black figures from his surroundings. Moreover, they are composed of low-key to lighter tonal hues. The paintings ideate a feeling of lush landscape sneaking through the narrative of routine. Superimposed with various techniques, styles, and objects, the paintings portray the dilemma of culture and socio-politics. Predominantly portraying female figures, the portrayals and visual representation delve beyond the mere figures and colours. They augment dialogue among the community.
A celebrated African artist, Damola’s portraits and figurative schemes indulge in the expressionist ideology, wherein the shades are emotional and charged with a retelling of past stories. More importantly, the figures look back at the viewers, initiating the concept of gaze and constant revelation.
