They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but sometimes they are worth so much more. Artist Komi Olaf creates spectacular art that seem to speak-out, tell stories, and express ideas. This Architect graduate’s work uses manipulations of light and space and juxtaposition of image concepts. Komi has been painting and drawing for about 5 years and has just recently decided to pursue his art on a full-time basis. In his spare time, Komi enjoys playing chess, reading coffee table books at chapters, and checking-out live bands.
What he stands for!
Along with being involved with Ribbon Rouge initiatives, Komi is also a supporter of cancer and HIV research. His passion for art have also lead him to support and participate in art programs for inner-city youth.
Komi has a lot of wise words for that can be beneficial to anyone in all walks of life. He advises:
“Take as much time as you need to polish your voice, and when you find it do not be afraid to speak your truth”
When it comes to staying focused and motivated, Komi takes the proactive role. He first removes the distractions that could be present on the journey towards his goals. He is inspired by love and finds beauty in life and everything around him. Komi believes in hard work and the importance of being the best at whatever you choose to do.
Komi Olaf will be displaying his art on November 21st, 2014 at Ribbon Rouge in Edmonton! www.ribbonrouge.com.
