artist profile

Yinka Ilori is a London-based designer who upcycles vintage furniture inspired by the traditional Nigerian parables and African fabrics from his childhood. He believes that art is a narrative and color is a language that spread the story of his Nigerian heritage and culture. With each custom-made piece inspired by a parable, Ilori restores new life and purpose to reclaimed materials.
