Statement

I was born in 1973 in Agou-Nyogbo, Togo ( West Africa ).I am a visual artist and currently live and work in Stuttgart, Germany.

1991-1995 I studied Painting and Batik Art at  CEAA - Collège d´enseignement artistique et artisanal ( College of Arts and Crafts ) in Kpalimé, Togo.

1995-1999 I teached Art in primary school in Kpalimé and at Centre Padre Francisco in Sokodé, Togo.

My work mainly focuses on various social issues.

I would also like to create a positive feeling that gives hope and makes people feel good.
