Moustapha Baidi Oumarou, Cliche ideal, 2021MOUSTAPHA BAIDI OUMAROU
CLICHÉ IDÉAL
2021
Acrylic and posca on canvas
200 x 300 cm

The colourful canvases by Moustapha Baidi Oumarou (b.1997, Cameroon) highlight the good inside each of us. Due to his flowery patterns and the scenes he paints, the artist definitely proposes a humanist painting. Naturally, his delicate and subtle outlines immersed in a lush nature evoke a moment of sharing, conviviality, or even introspection.  

Saïdou DickoSAÏDOU DICKO
LE TABOURET T JAPON BLUE 2 GREEN
2020
Painted photography
90 x 120 cm

Saïdou Dicko (b. 1970, Burkina Faso) is fascinated by the shadows since his childhood. They pushed him to draw while he was a shepherd. Since then, shadows taints his work of poetry and gentleness. Using the same silhouettes and the same motifs, Saïdou Dicko questions time, space and identity. Transformed into shadows, his characters roam the world. 

Cristiano Mangovo, AgoraCRISTIANO MANGOVO
AGORA
2021
Acrylic on canvas
120 x 120 cm

The painting of Cristiano Mangovo (b. 1982, Angola) is explosive and alive. The scattered bodies give life to new and composite beings. He explores hybridisation by creating fantastic characters assembled from human, animal and vegetable attributes.

2020
Acrylic, Indian ink and posca on canvas
200 x 170 cm

Jean David Nkot (b. 1989, Cameroon) describes himself as a painter of the human condition. His work is easily recognisable, with his hyperrealist portraits over mapped backgrounds. Confronting personal stories, economic data and geopolitical norms, he does not lose sight of the human aspect. The portraits he makes are a way to illustrate abstract figures and to put a face on a geopolitical reality.

Marc Posso, les 3 frèresMARC POSSO
LES 3 FRÈRES
2020
Photography - Edition of 5
60 x 90 cm

Marc Posso (b. 1985, Gabon) composes with the African continent’s cultural richness and diversity.Through his photographic work, he aims to deconstruct stereotypes associated with African culture. His photos play with the shapes of his subjects, the contrast of the colours and the volumes of the fabrics to celebrate their history. He feeds his pictorial vocabulary through traditions and customs from various countries of the continent.
