Oji Edutainment

Shipyard Artist in Residence 2001-2002

Having spiritual experiences allowed Oji to see life from new perspectives which in turn enriched his artwork. Some call the “Kundalini”, also the Umbilini in the Zulu language. Oji’s Kundalini experience also made him focus on how sacred life was and is. As Shipyard Artist in Residence he enjoyed having art shows and meeting other artists, being inspired by their artwork as well. “Two of my favorite artists are Joe.Sam & Malik Seneferu”, says Oji.

He loves to experiment with surrealism and also appreciates realism. His styles of art range from abstract to collage, portraits to sacred geometry. Nature photography is also a hobby that he enjoys. 3d Animation is another vehicle that Oji loves to drive. He has been creating 3d animated videos for over 10 years. Oji has created animated videos for great artists such as First Degree The D.E. & R.B.L. Posse. “The animation helps to bring the art and music to life,” says Oji.

In 2018 the artists Georgia Anne Muldrow and Dudley Perkins helped Oji release his album titled “Sono’theism”. “The term “Sono’theism” is as if sound healing was my religion. In a past life I was a sound healing priest.”So Oji incorporates tuning forks and singing bowls into his songs and live performances. Oji looks forward to creating more artwork around yoga, sound healing, dance, & transcendental meditation. Oji has also been producing an album for the west African rapper Joey Le Soldat for the past two years that he is very excited about. Oji says “The music inspires the art, and the art inspires the music.”
