“What is art? To some people, its just a subject, but to me, well, its a feeling… Art is as a matter of fact, more than a feeling, its a way of life; its how I derive my sense of being”. -Ikeoluwa Odunjo (c 2016) .
Today, our guest writer and artist on Seeking Touch is Ikeoluwa Odunjo .
Art is a very important, or rather, a “major key” to everything in my life, and to be quite frank, it has influenced me in many ways, such as my choice of clothing, what I listen to and so on.
Looking back, I just realised that I have always been artistically inclined; I was deeply rooted in it. Solace was very synonymous to anything related to the arts honestly speaking.
Why I didn’t realise this on time, I really don’t know, if I recall, I kept on searching for the same rhapsody I derived from art in every other discipline, and trust me when I say that this went on for a number of years.
Art is honestly the best thing that has happened to me, in it I find purpose, tranquility and myself. Prior to “falling in art” I started to hone my writing skills as well, mainly focusing on poetry, and I have really improved. Currently, I am 18 years old, going to university in January 2017 to study Visual Art and Literature, and I intend to be the best in what I do.
After many years of searching for who I am- my sense of being, I have concluded that I am Ikeoluwa Odunjo and Ikeoluwa Odunjo is art.

Seeing her absolutely amazing talent would most likely bring you to the agreement that studying visual art & literature, brings Ike only a step closer to fulfilling her desire of becoming an artist.
