FEATURE: 'Ori' - the art of Nigerian-born artist Oluseye

Explore the work of Toronto based artist Oluseye aka Seye Ogunlesi.The Nigerian-born artist - whose work centers on the use of geometry and his Yoruba heritage - recently debuted his first body of work, 'Ori'  - an exploration of sexuality, spirituality and identity. Check it out below. Oluseye tells AFROPUNK, "With this body of work, I wanted to challenge the notion that sexuality and spirituality are dichotomous and instead present both as fluid and essential elements of one's identity". The 'Ori' exhibition closes May 12 (Gallery 151, New York). Click here for more info.
