Taiwo's Studio
The Studio of Taiwo DuVall

Greetings! Taiwo DuVall, author, artist, musician and folklorist, was born and raised in Washington, D.C. After surviving his military service as a paratrooper, he lived and worked in Harlem, New York City. During his time in New York, Taiwo graduated from the Pan American Art School of NYC (1956-61) and owned an art studio on "Striver's Row" in Harlem. He writes about these experiences and more in his published book, Venial Sins: An Autobiography. To order the book, please go to my store. To review it and/or download the Kindle version (which can be read on any digital device using the Kindle App or via the Kindle Cloud Reader), please go to Amazon.com.

As of August 2015, he launched a new blog, For Real on GoodReads.com.
