As a painter of the human condition, Jean David Nkot has made of his hyper realistic portraits on a cartographic background his signature. He provides, through his work, the archives of the anynomous of our times, those that History will not remember. A great dignity comes out of these bodies painted by Jean David Nkot. His solo show Human@Condition is a message of hope and resilience. Thus, Jean David revitalizes the image of these individuals in the shadows.
