Rising Stars: Meet Olaoluwa Ayeni of Owings Mills

Today we’d like to introduce you to Olaoluwa Ayeni. 

Hi Olaoluwa, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
I come from a Nigerian household which is not too big on the art idea. I’ve chosen a different route that actually makes me happy. It all started when a friend of mine sent me some collage art and told me to try it out in the beginning of 2020, so I looked on the app store for some editing apps to start from and just took off from there. As I seen the potential, I had with my first photo collage I was always so excited about the next thing I would create. Even now that excitement still hits me with every idea that enters my mind. 

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It hasn’t really been a smooth road for me. Just trying to get my name out there its self has not been easy but I’m happy to say people are starting admire my art and me as an artist. Creative block is another huge thing that I’ve dealt with which causes annoyance for me and every single artist I believe but I have to let the ideas come naturally. 

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I am a Visual Artist who is able to turn a professional photoshoot into an absolute masterpiece. Doing that I also aim to amplify the beauty of Black Men & Women. 

What makes you happy?
Psalm 144:15 God has been doing little and big things to make me happy no matter the circumstance. All Glory to God. 

Family and friends also makes me happy. 

I have been blessed with an amazing circle who loves me and supports me.
