Olaniyi’s artistic journey is as inspiring as his creations. Rooted in the ethos of recycled art, he transforms discarded materials into treasured masterpieces. With beads as his chosen medium, he channels his innermost thoughts and experiences, offering a profound reflection on migration, cultural identity, and the human condition. His works serve as a testament to the power of imagination, encouraging viewers to transcend personal boundaries and embrace their true selves.

Raised in the historic town of Osogbo, fondly referred to as the “land of indigo” in Osun State, Nigeria, Olaniyi’s upbringing deeply influences his artistic vision. His connection to his roots infuses his art with a sense of authenticity and reverence for tradition.
