Stephen Fakiyesi

I am a conceptual artist best known for producing print media installations that address social, spiritual, and cultural identities. Among other distinctions, I was the recipient of the inaugural Bette Midler Scholarship at the University of California in Los Angeles, in the prestigious Visual Arts MFA program. I have worked or exhibited in the company of many of our generations most acclaimed artists.

My art practice has been described as reflecting on the legacy of colonization and its effects on African-Canadian culture in the global economy. Through my art practice, I address the underpinnings of our often messy, and complex social interactions with, arguably, disarming visual constructs, using creative methods oftentimes predicated on play, and interactivity.
