Born in Lagos, Nigeria, but spent most of his adolescent life in Edmond, Oklahoma. He graduated Oklahoma Baptist University with two bachelors one in fine art and there in family psychology. Bashorun had intentions to return to school to attain his masters in Art Therapy but decided he would rather be an artist. He now lives and creates in the Middle Tennessee.
In addition to creating original pieces, he teaches art, instructs ballroom dancing, and hosts creative workshops. He also spends time volunteering for a non-profit organization geared towards relieving homelessness. Olasubomi's artistic inspiration was fostered and influenced in part, by his high school art teacher, Kathleen Blake.
“I have always had talent to see and create, but she made me realize what art can do for the mind and soul. She taught me to be creative and express myself with art. I've been doing that ever since.
I believe that every one of us should create. Sure, some people's talent may be more esthetically pleasing than other, but it's not only about the outcome. It is about the process of starting from nothing, adding the first mark, working through the rough edges and the mistakes, and then knowing when to walk away.
Creating is for us all. To get lost in, to express words, moods and feelings. Creating is life.”
