Dr. Yaoundé Olu is a native Chicagoan, award-winning editorial cartoonist, illustrator, educator, and indie comic and graphic novel publisher who has used numerous media during her more than 40 year of creating visual and auditory art. Her paintings and drawings have been exhibited widely and she has won numerous awards. Since 1980, she has been editorial cartoonist for the Chicago and Gary Crusader newspapers. She was a visual arts delegate to FESTAC, the Festival of Black and African Arts in Lagos, Nigeria, in 1977. From the late 1960s until the early 1980s, she ran the alternative gallery, Osun, which she founded in 1968 in the South Shore neighborhood of Chicago. Her art is designed to portray an alternate worldview that is distinct from everyday life, but provides an objective mirror through which our lives can be seen.
