Folakunle Oshun


Osh is an Artist-Curator from Lagos, Nigeria. His journey is one of the paradoxes, coincidences, and uncertainties. In the last two years, he has focused on the development of emerging artists by challenging their creative process and psych. This has involved a huge amount of collaborative work with the artists; both in the conceptualization and creation of their work. These adventures have led him to work with a vast number of artists who employ mediums other than those he is familiar with. Hence, he has been able to create a pattern of engagement with these artists that begins with a tedious research and dialogue process. Owing to his background as a visual artist, he's able to adapt to the different mediums and materials the artist chooses to explore. This process has been rewarding as he finds that younger artists are more open to new ideas, processes, and experiments. They find themselves in an environment and economy where they constantly have to improvise and find alternatives in terms of our materiality and process.
