As Omoruyi shares a glimpse of his journey as a creative and everything in between.
Two words attempt to describe your works: stunning and inspiring! We see how your works in photography indeed ‘paint light into memories.’
Can you please share a glimpse of what inspired your journey as a photographer?
I have always had a love for creativity,
I love combining things just to create something out of my imagination.
First and foremost God has always been the source of my inspiration . Which I am always thankful for. Also, my photography pals. Always involving ourselves in healthy competitions in other to improve.
What does Art mean to you?
Art means alot to me.
Art is the language through which I let out my innermost thoughts.
Dreams. We believe every creative has a dream. Aspirations and goals that give us utmost fulfillment when we reach them.
As a creative, how would you best describe your ‘dream life?’
Well, my “dream life…”
I want to own a big gallery one day where artists can display their masterpiece, and also be recognised as one of the best in my type of photography.
Your type of photography is away from the regular. Your works are beautiful as each tells a story untold. What would you consider most fulfilling right now in your journey as a fine art photographer?
At this point people are able to recognise my artpieces without me being around the particular place they saw it, this means my Art is beginning to speak for itself.
How was growing up like?
Growing up was quite easy for me because I have parents who wanted me to focus on my education but still supported me being a photographer.They have always had my back ever since.
Do you feel creatives in developed countries are at advantage than those in developing countries?
Creatives in developed countries have an advantage than Creativites in developing countries.
For example in my country you have to pay and pay people just because you want to create using a particular location which may not even be their own.
Apart from that, developed countries have a conducive environment.
We understand how balancing work time and rest time is a struggle for many Creatives. Please can you share a few tips on how you try to balance work time and rest time?
I love playing games. So, most times in other to rest you can do something recreational.
You can go for a walk, go to spa, watch a movie.
Who knows as you are resting more inspiration will come.
If you could do a collab as a photographer with any other artist, what art would that be?
It still going to fall under fineart photography. There are a lot of talented photographers in the space and I’m grateful to know many.
Who are your ‘ICONS’ in the Creative Industry?
And many more
What does success mean to you?
Success to me means being able to impact people.
Let’s go a little poetic: If poetry is a rainbow and you have a choice of one color in that pallette, what would that be and why?
Honestly, I don’t know what color to pick.
But I guess I’d go with red because it’s a symbol of love.
