That traditional African art has intrinsic aesthetic, cultural and historical value is no longer a secret to the world. It is the endeavour of The Omo-Oba Oladele Odimayo Art Foundation to arouse broad interest and critical appraisal of the artistic heritage of a vibrant country of West Africa. Its affluent history and diversity of cultures are attributes that find copious and evocative expression in its legacy of traditional art.

The trustees of the foundation comprise family members and notable persons with a passion for art patronage. Amongst its noted trustees is Omo-Oba Yemisi Adedoyin Shyllon, a prominent art collector and founder of the Omo-Oba Yemisi Adedoyin Shyllon Art Foundation, with which the Omo-Oba Oladele Odimayo Art Foundation has organised collaborative exhibitions.
