He is the founder of Humble Arts Foundation, a 501c3 that supports and promotes new photography. From 2008 to 2012, he curated numerous exhibitions of contemporary photography, and spearheaded the four-part series Young Curators, New Ideas. In 2011 he joined Nadine Johnson & Associates as an art publicist for clients such as the Brant Foundation Art Study Center, Marlborough Chelsea, and the Dallas Art Fair. Eighteen months later, he was named managing editor of Whitewall, having previously contributed to the magazine articles on artists William Eggleston, Zoe Crosher, Elad Lassry, and Rashaad Newsome. He left to establish Olu & Company, a marketing agency for the arts and beyond. In 2016 he ended his curatorial hiatus with an upcoming show at Storefront Ten Eyck. Olu makes art under the name "Scott Avery,” and is currently developing a platform for content creators.
