OLALEKAN JEYIFOUS

Brooklyn

Olalekan Jeyifous’ artwork is strongly rooted in “borrowed and invented narratives”.

More often than not these narratives explore comprehensive constructions of urban Utopias/ Dystopias that deal with the interstices of architecture, emerging technologies, and culture; anchoring them with a direct relevance to contemporary social issues in ways that communicate their participation in, and alienation from the larger world. As a Nigerian-born, U.S. citizen, his formative years were marked by constantly moving and perpetually adapting to new places, and his work often responds to either the anxiety or potential of these spaces, and how one navigates, maps, and perceives them.

As a means of articulating these narratives, his creative process regularly combines digital illustration and 3D computer modeling with photographs, hand-drawing, and collage, in order to produce detailed yet whimsical illustrations, photo-montages, 360° VR experiences, adaptable and mobile architectural sculptures, and large-scale public installations."
