Elangwe Sesse
Elangwe Sesse (b. 1994, Buea, Cameroon) lives in Buea, Cameroon and draws inspiration from his day-to-day life and surroundings. The message behind his paintings is how we should open our eyes to bigger visions to achieve grander things. The large eye represents enlightenment. He wants his art to encourage us as a people, to have a bigger eye for the bigger things, the bigger issues, and thus bigger achievements. He coins his art practice as ‘contemporary afro-pop’ with a mixture of cubism and surrealism. Sesse draws inspiration from Picasso, we see this through his distortion of parts of the face, especially the eyes. His works are in private collections that spread across North America, Europe, and Africa.
