My name is Karo Durojaiye. I was born in Nigeria, raised in Ireland, and am currently forging my path in Atlanta, Georgia. I craft evocative bodies of work and visual poetry through the fusion of digital art, motion design, and immersive technologies.
My technical background is in Computer Science with a focus on Human Computer Interaction and Artificial Intelligence. However I am an artist at heart; my choice to study Computer Science was actually an unorthodox one. I was deeply fascinated by the computer and wanted to truly understand this artificial mind that we are creating and the possibilities that lay beyond it. .
Guided by imagination and the spirit of innovation, I seek to provoke thought and speak to the subconscious. My current areas of exploration are Afro Futurism, Ethics in Technology, and Psychology and Spirituality. Through these interrelated spheres my goal is to create works that generate discourse, challenge assumptions, and leave viewers curious and viscerally engaged.
I am fortunate to be recognized both nationally and globally in notable spaces such as Carnegie Hall, and Vienna's Desiderio Gallery, and Red Door Gallery in Nigeria.
From dreams to deep research, my work delves into the vast themes of metaphysics, the human condition, and the societal conflicts arising from technological advancements versus natural progression. Currently, I am exploring the potential plight of artificial intelligence and aim to spread awareness on the power and potency of our data.
Using multi-media forms of expression, my goal is to communicate these complex theories and concepts in a way that speaks directly to the subconscious
Drawing on my diverse upbringing and background in computer science, I aim to convey these dense themes in a visually appealing manner that captures the imagination and leaves a lasting impression. The end result is a collection of work that defies convention and invites us to explore the very depths of our being.
