The Only Series by Omiiroo Reception

Omiiroo’s extensive body of work spans many mediums and themes while centering primarily on wordplay, painting and sculpture. This artist residency and installation at Alena Museum represents the premiere of Omiiroo’s “The Only” series, which he has been developing over the last four years. This collection includes portraiture, abstract, and landscape interpretations as well as sculptures, all of which draw inspiration from graffiti and street art. Omiiroo’s art is conceptualized and crafted through, from, and for the contemporary experiences and realities of black people with the aim of adding another perspective to the stories of our humanity and history. 

For Omiiroo, this residency serves as an opportunity to decenter the art, artist, and ego and instead start a conversation that is reflective of the status of contemporary arts and the black experience as a whole."

Come view the exhibition, and participate in a meet and greet
with the artist, Omiiroo Nyeusi!
