Bol Aweng is Maluak’s cousin and another Lost Boy of Sudan. While in a refugee camp in Kenya, he developed his art skills on his own from his memory and imagination, using material available in the camp. Many of his paintings tell the journey of the Lost Boys, which he calls “The Journey of Hope”. He graduated from The Ohio State University in 2009, where he majored in Fine Arts (for more information about Bol’s art, his website is http://www.bolaweng.com). Bol returned to his home in Southern Sudan in 2007 and 2010. He, along with Jok Dau, are currently raising funds to build a health clinic in their village of Piol. Bol lives in Columbus, Ohio with his wife, daughter, and son.
