Acrylic and collage on canvas
107 x 122 cm
Sejiro Avoseh (b. 1990, Nigeria) proposes hybrid and fantastical forms. His work reflects the changes and mutations of society, echoing his own experiences. It translates his will to change the established order to build a new world.

If he lives in Maroua - a city located in the extreme north of Cameroon, exposed to political conflicts - Moustapha Baidi Oumarou (b.1997, Cameroon) seeks above all to provide happiness to those who look at his paintings. Thus, the hope of a world where only moments of joy and friendship exist in his work. From this composition emerges mystery, goodwill and serenity. Far from the chaos of the city, under Moustapha Baidi Oumarou’s brushes, an ideal world appears: a collection of happiness and love.

Saïdou Dicko, the blue moon of OuagadougouSAÏDOU DICKO

Painted Photography
100 x 75 cm

Using the same silhouettes and the same motifs, Saïdou Dicko (b. 1970, Burkina Faso) questions time, space and identity. Transformed into shadows, his characters roam the world. The artist documents the present and imagines the future. The shadows that spring under his hands take over all temporality. Yesterday, today and tomorrow belong to them. They are the change.

Omar Mahfoudi, Sunrise, 2020OMAR MAHFOUDI
SUNRISE
2021
Ink and acrylic on paper mounted on canvas
152 x 132 cm

Intriguing, the phantasmagorical bodies featured in the work of Omar Mahfoudi (b.1981, Morocco), are immersed in an unknown environment. There is a call to nature emerging from the paper. That is a call to come back to the origin of the world, to rethink the universe facing its instability. Behind his art, an ecological consciousness arises.
