  • About the artwork

    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    Arnold Fokam's work revolves around water in relation to the body. Artist of dreams and utopia, his work will have a spiritual, cultural and ecological dimension. He is interested in the notion of symbiosis, and offers an intimate dialogue between Humanity and the aquatic universe. He recalls that the critical state of the Anthropocene is sufficient for the need for humans to take care of Water, the source of all life on Earth. It is the protection and the celebration of life that is in question in his work, but also a praise to the woman, bearer of life, who becomes in the space of her staging and her blue portraits, the face of the human race. Through the work “Baptism with the Angels of the Sea” Arnold explores the ritual of baptism by water as it is done in his culture of origin, the Bamileke culture. It highlights the beneficial aspects of such a ritual which still remains alive in the regions of West Cameroon despite the gradual disappearance of ancestral rituals in this area.

Arnold Fokam

Cameroon Born in: 1996

Arnold Fokam is a young visual artist born in 1996 in Cameroon where he lives and works in the city of Douala.

Her work revolves around water in relation to the body and opens up to a multidisciplinary practice that explores painting, assemblage, sound creation as well as installation.

Graduated in Plastic Arts and Art History from the Institute of Fine Arts of the University of Douala in Nkongsamba, he followed a training which led him more towards painting on canvas before later experimenting with d 'other mediums.

Artist of dreams and utopia, his work will have a spiritual, cultural and ecological dimension. He is interested in the notion of symbiosis, and offers an intimate dialogue between Humanity and the aquatic universe. He mixes the real with the fantastic and reminds us that the critical state of the Anthropocene is sufficient for the need for humans to take care of Water, the source of all life on Earth.

It is the protection and the celebration of life that is in question in his work, but also a praise to the woman, bearer of life, who becomes in the space of her imaginary staging and her blue portraits, the face of the human race.

He is the winner of the Goethe Découverte 2020 / Visual Arts prize and his work is part of several private and public collections such as that of the Goethe Institut and the contemporary art center Doual'art.
