Oyewole studied Painting at the Federal College of Education, Lagos. He recently obtained a Masters in Fine Arts (Painting) from Obafemi Awolowo University where he also studied Fine and Applied Arts. He has participated in several group exhibitions in Nigeria and the United States of America. He is a member of the Society of Nigerian Artists (SNA), the International Watercolor Society of Nigeria, Plein-Air Society of Nigeria and associate member of the Universal Studios of Art

Oyewole’s works have evolved from classical rendition of urban landscapes, architecture, pictorial compositions and lifestyle, to an in-depth interpretation of traditional African Art forms through the manipulations of the elements and principles of art and design.

With every work, he seeks to breathe life into a long forgotten culture so that its designs, ideas, innovations, and lifestyle are meaningfully represented on the canvas or wood panels. He states that the challenge as with any recreated moment from the past is to not misrepresent the moment but instead capture it in all its former glory. His artwork speaks not only for him but for people who are usually silenced. He currently lives and works in Lagos.
