Olasubomi Bashorun graduated with an art degree from Oklahoma Baptist University and now lives and works in the Middle Tennessee area.
In addition to creating beautiful original work, he volunteers for non-profit organizations geared towards relieving homelessness.
Olasubomi’s artistic inspiration was fostered and influenced, in part, by his high school art teacher, Kathleen Blake. I have always had talent to see and create, but she made me realize what art can do for the mind and soul. She taught me to be creative and express myself with my art. I’ve been doing that ever since and firmly believe that everyone of us should create. Sure, some people’s creation maybe more esthetically pleasing than others. But its not only about the outcome, it is about the process of starting from nothing, adding the first scribble then creating relationships from scribble to line, working through rough edges and the mistakes and then knowing when to walk away.
Creating is for us all to get lost in something, express words, moods, feelings. Creating is life.”
