About the Artist

Komi Olafimihan is a visual artist, poet and architectural designer who is best known for his ability to represent, both visually and poetically, the complexities of the world and generation he finds himself within. In recent years, Komi’s art has been shaped by a cultural and artistic movement known as Afrofuturism, which explores African and African diasporic cultures in intersection with technology.

Through the lens of Afrofuturism, Komi has been able to transmit his sense of pride in the African cultures from which his perspectives emerge. He earned his Master of Architecture degree from Carleton University in 2009, where his academic research focused on the limits and uses of improvisation in architecture through a case study of the Makoko fishing community; a floating city in Lagos, Nigeria.

The principles of improvisation, assemblage and collage are still potent sources of creativity and invention for Komi Olaf, the influence of which can be seen and felt equally in his painting, poetry, and design work.

He Manages Studio-laf and works in Toronto, Ontario
