With the belief that creative expression is limitless, Titi Abiola’s work is multi-disciplinary. Her practice ranges from commissioned, intricate embroideries to furniture design.
Story telling is at the heart of Abiola’s work, whether it is a jewellery collection born from living in The Phillippines or championing her Nigerian heritage. Travel and cultural exchange continually mould Titi’s craft and she is unrelenting in adding to her skillset.
Specialising in stitch during her undergraduate studies at Chelsea college of art and design, Titi evolved her exploration of surface and textiles during her Master’s degree at Central saint martins. Having trained extensively in the fashion and textile industry, it was her experience at Alexander McQueen that was pivotal and further reinforced her design dexterity. Time at Polimoda in Florence had equal impact, imparting her with fashion design and illustration skills. Rounding off her training, in Interior architecture at Parsons in New York.
Titi’s work explores contemporary translations of traditional crafts and is characterised by her strong sense of colour and pattern.
Abiola remains investigative about how design can allow us to interact more positively with the world and each other. Her work has featured on platforms and exhibitions nationally and internationally, notably on CNN vision and at the Wallace collection, London.
