Olaolu Slawn, a Nigerian skater born in Lagos and now living in London, is one of three owners of the skate brand Motherlan created in 2017. He recently collaborated with Virgil Abloh to create another Lagos-located skate collective. Slawn considers himself above all a scam artist but also a painter.

About the project

"When I create a work it’s entirely based on how I’m feeling in the moment. It's hard to give an explanation of the process, as soon as I’m finished my minds moved on. It really just depends on how I’m feeling, whatever cartoons I’ve been watching and where I’m working, that’s why I like having my friends around. Oh and porn."
