(1928 - 2009)
Lamidi Olonade Fakeye was active/lived in Nigeria. Lamidi Fakeye is known for sculpture.
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.
