New York based artist Kayode Ojo works in multi-media, from photography to installations. With a BFA in photography from the School of Visual Arts, the artist weaves image-making with found objects and performance to create a cohesive narrative exploring the construction/deconstruction of identities, consumer culture, and reconciling seemingly disparate binaries. With favorable reviews from a variety of outlets--from The New York Times to Garage--and shows in Los Angeles, New York, Paris, Berlin, Milan, Greece and beyond, the artist is poised to rise.
