In On The Way, Okey Ofomata’s works show flash moments of hectic scenes, often from varying perspectives, brimming with energy as they convey a sense of suspense. Thick and heavy brushstrokes add to the hurriedness of the images and suggest the urge to go from one destination to the next. At times, Ofomata’s subjects seem to freeze in motion, like taken by a need to reflect on their actions and on their own self.

Okey Ofomata (b. 1997) is a Los Angeles-based contemporary artist known for his energetic and allegorical works. He is currently studying Fine Art and Animation at Mt. San Antonio College in Los Angeles, CA. In the past, Ofomata has shown works at Aziz Gallery (LA), Prizm Art Fair (Miami), Joyce Gordon Gallery (Oakland). He has also collaborated with various musicians, such as MIKE and Young Morpheus.
