Farouk Alao

I solve problems and create Art.

I was born in Lagos ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฌ, raised in Dublin ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช and made in Limerick ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช, I am currently based in Dublin. I am a Graphic Design Communication graduate of Limerick School of Art & Design. I have lived between Limerick, Dublin and London over the last few years. 

I find inspiration mainly from my daily interactions with the world. I create art to better understand the world around me and hopefully help others understand thereโ€™s better. I utilise 2D and 3D design tools and methodologies as-well-as photography. I focus my work on humanity questioning the things we think we know about ourselves. I enjoy working across multiple mediums as it allows me to tell a diverse range of stories through my work. My art style is ever-evolving.

I worked at the M&C Saatchi offices in London for several months after a 4-week work placement as a Graphic + Motion designer, I have an ongoing freelance relationship with M&C Saatchi. I currently work as a Freelance Brand Consultant, Graphic + Motion Designer and Model represented by IMM London and Not Another Agency ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช.

  • Bahrain Economic Development Board
