Artist Creates Humangous Detailed Masks

Brooklyn based artist Kip Omolade is best known for his masks and hyperrealistic portraits. He first stepped into the art world as a graffiti master, while being an intern at Marvel Comic and The Center for African Art.

“In my paintings, I previously presented each mask as a singular portrait,” the artist told Colossal. “In my current work, the faces are now interacting with each other. They are arranged together on large canvases measuring 13-15 feet long. The masks have become mythological characters having conversations about humanity. I see them as deities pondering age old questions about birth, life, death, identity and love.”

With time he became a super successful artist whose work has been featured in international media. He also had the opportunity to work with big brand names like Nike and Sony Music.

Omolade also shares his work on his website and Instagram account where he has attracted over 19 thousand followers.
