Oluseye is a Nigerian-Canadian artist. Central to his practice is the black male form, which he engages as the locus for his intersectional exploration of identity, value, sexuality and existentialism. Aesthetically and conceptually, his work is informed by Yoruba culture – its rituals, sculptures, mythology and the angular facial features of its people. Oluseye is fascinated by the interplay of seemingly dichotomous ideas – Christianity and African religions, vulnerability and strength, spirituality and sexuality, socio-politics and pop-culture – and how black men navigate and reconcile these ideas in a quest for balance, self-actualization and acceptance. Through portraiture, performance and installation, he explores the ways in which contemporary, historical and indigenous knowledges, myths, and identities come together to shape how Black men are seen, how they see themselves, and how they perceive the world around them.
