Ola Ronke Akinmowo
Visual Art, Mixed Media, Installation & Performance
Ola Ronke is new to calling herself an artist, and hopes that whatever her work evolves into there will always be elements of Blackness, femininity and magic within, because that’s who she is. She is interested in using art as a tool to provoke, heal, nurture and inspire deep emotion, critical thinking and perspective shifting. Ola has been a set designer, building and designing space for narrative film. Her performance art practice began when she shared her piece “Listening Station” at Stoops. She is a recent Culture Push Fellowship recipient for her new performance piece: The Free Black Woman’s Library.
