Soull Ogun

2021 Artist In Residence

ARTIST'S STATEMENT

Soull Ogun explores the relationship between ancient metal fabrication techniques, contemporary philosophy, solar technology, and the reimagining of Afro-Futurism in her jewelry and sculptural practices, utilizing metalsmithing techniques that encompass and encourage a rich history of blending regality with science. During her MAD residency, Ogun will work with stone lapidary, hand carving, molding, and flameless techniques.

Ogun is co-founder and head designer of L’Enchanteur, a jewelry, clothing, and lifestyle incubator that seeks to redefine the meaning of an heirloom. Ogun has created bespoke jewelry for artists including Ms. Lauryn Hill, Erykah Badu, and Beyoncé in the film Black is King.
