HomeAbout Me

DOTUN POPOOLA is a synergetic metal sculptor who has carved a niche for himself with his monumental metal sculptures.

He rose from a state hopelessness to becoming a dealer in hope; giving himself to service of humanity through his artistic practice and community services. He is passionate about touching lives through his artistic and leadership skills; turning trash to treasures, rubbish to rubies and waste to wealth.

Dotun facilitates art workshops for students, professionals, NGO’s, healthcare institutions, hospices, orphanage homes, rehabilitation centers and schools locally and internationally. He has equally executed several monumental sculptures and large murals both in Nigeria and United States of America, he continues to provide landmark mentoring opportunities for Professional development for local and International artists in his studio in South-West Nigeria.

Dotun’s immense contribution to the growth of art globally has been featured in over 100 publications, both locally and internationally. His artistic practice is based on a personal philosophy that art should be explored as an agent of change, and as a tool of sociocultural review, reengineering and protest against environmental decadence. His body of works have addressed the issue of waste management and conservation, infrastructural decay, and the need to repurpose, recycle, and reuse the large army of wastes that make our environment unsightly and threaten the ecosystem. His goal then and now, is aimed at creating a luxury brand from discarded materials, and giving better values to dead and abandoned scraps.


At the age nine, my parents were sensitive enough to discover my creative ability with respect to art and creation of beauty.
