Enfant Précoce is a painter, born in Cameroon in 1989. He discovered art with his uncle Malam Essoua, sculptor, whose life as a free artist inspired him. Then he dances.

This first love for movement led Francis Essoua alias Enfant Précoce to painting, with which he fell in love in 2013. His canvases mix bodies, sometimes stretched, sometimes relaxed, hands apart, legs projected between African faces and masks. A thousand and one colors bloom. It is the color of children's tales.
