ABOUT


The New York-based artist Obi-Ora is known for large-scale paintings in which he explores generally unaccepted notions of beauty. Obi uses derelict construction materials, including common recycled leather, wood, as canvases. Fusing together damaged, unaesthetic scraps of wood and leather, steel plates, and heated black tar, Obi then paints and repurposes them in creative ways. The artist draws inspiration from his design background and conceptual ideas, which he is “drawn to either because of the composition or colors or subject matter.” The resulting objects are textural creations that speak to Obi’s background in conceptual design.
