Norlan Olivo

Norlan was born in the Bronx on December 22nd, which means that every year since then he’s gotten ripped off on December 25th, only receiving a “Birthday/ Christmas present” instead of two gifts. Norlan moved to Providence when he was nine years old and has been here since. He is a photographer who has taught photo at many places including AS220’s adult program, AS220’s youth program and the beloved New Urban Arts. He’s also a musician who plays drums for an internationally touring marching band, The What Cheer Brigade and local punk band, The Downtown Boys.
