Nigerian born Architect, poet Yetunde Ogunwumi (aka Yeti Ogun) employs an extensive visual dictionary of patterns in the creation of her maximalist Portia’s inspired by concepts of organized chaos. Her reconstructions of the human form follow a long tradition of abstraction reconceived by her thorough process. By rich “pattern bible” across these systems (inspired by Yoruba traditional ADIRE , Art Deco, geometric forms. And nature), she produces unique scape at once diverse and he methodical. Self-taught, she began her present line of experimentation to counter her over-reliance on digital art.
