Dafe Orugbo is a multidisciplinary artist with a dynamic artistic practice coupled with years of industry experience. He is particularly interested in art that centres the audience experience, as seen in his work with the Dublin Fringe or the Word Up Collective.
One of Ireland’s most creative and forward-thinking musicians, Dafe Orugbo has achieved international acclaim as one half of hip-hop duo Tebi Rex, releasing two albums and touring Ireland, UK, and Europe. He writes on topics ranging from modern-day Ireland to Greek mythology and is an experienced public speaker, live performer, writer, spoken word artist, and podcaster. With an MA in Critical & Creative Media, he has become a leading cultural commentator and a respected mentor to young people. Selected as one of the lead artists for the 2022 Dublin Fringe, he created Filmore! – a project inspired by internet and meme culture that combined an interactive art installation with live performance.
