“When it comes to the public art in the murals, I think it is an opportunity to collaborate,” Odums said. “It's an opportunity to go into spaces, not as the voice but as the listener."
“I was always interested in drawing or putting pencil, crayon, marker to blank paper,” Odums said. “I was always doodling to the point where my classmates would offer to buy it or ask me to give it to them, or make requests.”
“I really enjoy speaking to and for and with Black voices and Black people, and my work often represents that in a very direct way,” Odums said.
Through five-story murals, indoor installations and found-object sculptures, he continues to tell the stories of state-sanctioned, racialized violence and creative forms of Black resistance.
