The Scribe

Oluwafemi is a rhythmist based in Philadelphia and originally from Lagos, Nigeria. He explores how our lives embody and reflect the universal phenomenon of pattern and repetition. His visual and musical work spans deejaying, music production, pen illustration, painting and digital video art. He blends influences from hip-hop, Mathematics and African culture in deejay sets, drawings and murals experienced throughout Philadelphia and beyond.   

The Scribe keeps time and detailed record of the past, present and future in the making.  The collective memory of the community is remembered through the work of The Scribe. Different from the purely oral historian or the griot, The Scribe is charged with creating cultural archives — be it analog or digital – that tell the story of their people that will survive the ages.
