Immanuel Oni

Immanuel Oni is a first generation Nigerian-American artist and space doula based in Brooklyn, NY. He believes art and design is not about what he is making, but who he is making it for. His work explores loss, memory, and its deep connection with space. His canvas consists of repurposing existing infrastructure, such as light posts, repurposed to prompt community dialogue and connection. His aim is to fuse the physical with the spiritual. He is also the commissioned artist for the Chrystie St. African Burial Ground Memorial Installation in the Lower East Side, NY.
