What happens when the world of art and architecture come together? That’s the world that Brooklyn artist Olalekan Jeyifous explores. He recently sent me some images from his series, City Settlements, and I fell in love with the city spaces that he brought to life on paper.
Worn, and reminiscent of areas of so many cities I have been to, each piece is part of a narrative that the viewer is free to create.
As Olalekan states, “I try to evoke a notion of ‘place’ rooted in immanence and possiblity”.
