May Friday for the Arts: Risegun Olomidun
“My belief is that art is alive; and should always be thought of as being alive. ‘Alive’ art can inspire the viewer to re-examine the reality around them - not merely as tangible objects, but also as ideas manifested in a physical form.
“I employ theories and techniques associated to abstract expressionism as a background for the exploration of media, imagery, and themes. Drawing from contemporary and traditional-ethnic (African, Native & African-American, Asian, Greek, Aboriginal) creative processes, and visual sensitivities, I worked work diligently in developing my own style and techniques, complimenting to my sense of aesthetics. Vivid and intense colors, surface textures, and infinite affects gained through experimentation, drives the creative inspiration of my work."
