Aishah Olabisi Balogun is a multidisciplinary artist and all around creative, exploring photography, poetry, and graphic design. She is in her final year of undergrad at Princeton University and will receive her B.A. in African American Studies in May of 2023. Her past experiences include student led group shows Stitching and Anticulation, as well as a creative direction role with the Brazil and New York based sustainable fashion brand Kotami.
As an artist, I'm constantly interested in exploring questions of the self and personal and familial histories. Born to Nigerian parents in Atlanta, Georgia, I'm fascinated by the diasporic identity. How I and others around the world navigate Blackness with our direct African lineage. My work currently is focused on piecing together my family's history through oral storytelling, found photos, poetry, and video.
