Art Brussels, 2011.

Barthélémy Toguo was born in Cameroonin 1967, he lives and works today in Paris and Bandjoun, Cameroon. He began his studies at the Abidjan School of Fine Arts, Côte d’Ivoire.

Barthélémy Toguo’s art, which spans performance, installation, sculpture, painting and printmaking, engages personal and political geographies in the context of global migrations and cultural confrontations. He is a multifaceted artist whose work has been exhibited at the Drawing Centre in New York, at the Cabinet des Arts Graphiques of the Georges Pompidou Centre in Paris, at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Miami and at the Mory Art Museum in Tokyo.

The artist began to work with watercolor in 1998; born of his many trips and experiences, this practice yields a kind of logbook or travel diary. Toguo has done several such watercolor series.

Très intéressant !

Merci pour vos posts.

J'ai failli indiquer Barthélémy Toguo dans la série d'articles que je viens de publier sur ce que j'ai appelé "l'aquarelle autrement" i.e. l'aquarelle abstraite
