Shaibu-Salami Ashiata (b, 1998) is a contemporary artist from Nigeria, a painter who considers life from different perspectives of people.
Her works revolve around societal complexities and how these complexities have confined individuals to a mental cage, exploring the ways they limit one from attaining a self desired level of expression where they are fully able to bask in their fullest potential. She creates visually compelling figurative paintings in vivid tones and hues as a fundamental portrayal of the state of mind of her subjects which reflect these 'complexities'.
Her journey into art emanated from her love for art generally and the urge to communicate a basic theme skill which is “ freedom” the freedom to express ourselves , the freedom to live , the freedom to dream.
