Hako Hankson began drawing, and then focused on rituals of his tribe. He completed his artistic education by frequenting art spaces. In 1992 he began to compare his motivations to those of other artists.
His paintings are sometimes metaphorical stories, the language of an initiatory heritage, of a previous life, a fragmented history. He transcribes forgotten habitudes, ancestral rituals, abandoned beliefs, his childhood memories.
His crushed, kneaded, stretched, collected, cut, split, caricatured personages remain human. Some of his major exhibitions have been in : Cameroon, Chad, Benin, Ivory Coast, France, Switzerland, Belgium, Finland.
