Alana Adetola Fajemisin is a native of Buffalo, New York. She received a dual Bachelor’s degree from the State University at Buffalo with a concentration in Fine Arts Painting & Art History.
Her masterfully created oil paintings deal with issues focused around social stratification and the climbing of the social hierarchy ladder performed by physical dominance as well as social interactions.
