Kayode-Malomo

Kayode weaves themes that oscillate around a game play of light and shadow, expressing strong versatility in oil, airbrushing, collage and mixed media. Bright colors painstakingly weave together in Malomo’s “light into life” themes. A multi-talented, multi-media artist, his paintings often feature themes that depict happiness, hope, beauty and the importance of education.

Born July 4th, Kayode appeared on the National TV series, “Tales by Moonlight” and “The Problem Studio” as a child actor in Nigeria. At seventeen, he co-founded MalomsyArt, a graphic and multi-media firm with his brother.
Malomo has been commissioned to paint for dignitaries such as the President of Nigeria, Sierra-Leone, Mali and Philadelphia’s Mayor to name a few. He has also been featured in several National and International dailies and was recognized by the Philadelphia Museum of Art during its “African Art, African Voices” Art exhibit in a feature film titled “In their own voices”, an interwoven portrait of four African artists in Philadelphia. Kayode has also exhibited at the African American Museum of Art.

Malomo Co-Chair’s the Business Services of the Mayor’s Commission on African & Caribbean Affairs and is Co-founder of Atlas Communications PCS. He holds a Bachelors in Political Science and Minor in Economics from the University of Ibadan in Nigeria including an MBA from Temple’s Fox School of Business and Management in Philadelphia.
