Nia Olabesi Artist Statement
As a performer, creating art is another form of self expression. Working with acrylic bold colors and mediums of various viscosities inject rhythm and movement into my work.
I achieve a vast range of textures using gel mediums, pastes, and mixed media/collage elements that give visual depth to my work.
I find layering techniques a challenge and absolutely liberating!
