Biography  
Lamidi Fakeye


Biography from Arthouse Contemporary Limited

Lamidi Fakeye comes from five generations of sculptors (not carvers).  His creative background includes farming, barbering, photography and mechanical repair and from this rich background did the master sculptor emerge.  Described by scholars as a master of the axe and wood, he must also be seen as a documenter and interpreter of our cultural heritage.
