Working in Afro-futurism, Komi Olaf’s surrealistic art and poetry speaks of progress, bringing together disjunctive images with perfect unity in a playfully profound vision of a futuristic Diaspora. He pushes his art in wondrous directions, immersing his realistically portrayed characters in mysterious dream worlds of splendor and soul. Serving as a witness to the persistence of beauty within a turbulent world, he develops powerfully complex connections allowing his curiosity and zeal for life to fuel his creative energies. Komi currently resides in Toronto, Canada and is committed to producing work that communicates love.
