Rufus Ogund, a Nigerian artist whose last name means "worshiper of Ogun"(Ogun being an Orisha in Yoruba mythology, embodying fire, iron and war) was one of the main actorrs in the Oṣogbo art movement.
In his youth, Ogundele was a musician and actor in his uncle Duro Ladipọ's theatrical ensemble.
Although raised within the Anglican Christ Mission Society, Ogundele associated the European artistic techniques that he developed in the workshops of Oṣogbo, under the tutelage of Williams and especially of Beier, with the teachings of traditional Yoruba culture. From the start, Ogundele worked on a large scale. It was at the invitation of Georgina Beier who invited him along with Jacob Afolabi to work with her that Ogundele trained alongside him in the technique of linocut.
