The Sacred Art of the Ori by Laolu
“The Sacred Art of the Ori is a Spiritually Intimate Experience. It’s Cathartic for both me and my Muse. We Connect Our Minds, Bodies, and Souls on Higher Level. I paint their Spirit and Soul from that Connection. It Breathes Life into Us Both. ”
My Art is called, Afromysterics, a term I coined in 2007, which means, the mystery of the African thought pattern.
All of my work is heavily influenced by my Yoruba heritage and often related to the environment I find myself in.
As a Pioneer and Leader in the Afrofuturism movement I consider it my duty to keep creating and to continue to push boundaries.
I am a passionate activist and you will notice how most of my works have social justice ideologies woven throughout. Also, you will notice feminism, women and children are often present and common themes in my work, this is because of my work as Human Rights Lawyer in Nigeria I was impacted by the strength girls and women have shown me. #Love it!
