Onajide Shabaka

My interest in art began in high school with a photography course that eventually allowed me creative license to photograph what I wanted. That interest continued through various post-secondary institutions, including: Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, CA., and California College of the Arts (CCA), Oakland, CA, culminating in a MFA awarded from Vermont College of the Fine Arts (Montpelier, VT), an institution focused on self-designed, and multidisciplinary courses of study. Over the past fifteen years my practice has included art writing and independent curatorial work, both of which are important aspects of my art practice and allow me to take advantage of many years of formal and informal study and research.
