Ayo Scott

From as early as he can remember, Scott found himself immersed in the art community of his city, New Orleans. He grew to love the studio time he spent with his father, artist John T. Scott: 40-year professor of art and recipient of the MacArthur Fellowship. He never felt pressured to be an artist, but his family always provided him with opportunity, guidance and support for his endeavors from bronze casting to papermaking. After graduating from Xavier University in New Orleans with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 2003, he pursued a master’s degree in Design and continues to develop his visual vocabulary.
