For me, design is a creative process that is the basis of everything. In my work I bring my thoughts to life, I present my own vision of things.
Who am I ?
Self-taught Beninese artist, I started as a photographer in 2016 at Medusartstudio and was the 2018 winner of the Best photographic collaboration Award at the African festival FESTIFLASH. I have since moved on to film as photo director & cinematographer and since 2020 have embarked on the adventure of 2D and 3D motion design.
Part of « Identity » the first virtual Exhibition of the 1mA Collective in June/July 2021 with 4 other artists, I was honored to participate in the First physical NFT exhibition in Africa. Organized by the Cyber Baat Artists’ DAO in Dakar (Senegal), the show featured 23 african creators physically at the Jendalmart Gallery and digitally on Foundation.app in September 2021 (curator: Linda Dounia).
I have been selected for the first-ever Digital Art Fair Asia with one NFT artwork entitled « Guardian » presented to the public from October 3 to 22, 2021 in Hong Kong.
The year 2022 begins with the exhibition « Africa is not a country » end January for the foundraiser of the Cyber Baat DAO. I was honored to have my piece « Azô Zangbetor » about the lacustrian city Ganvié collected by Nicolas Sassoon, Lana Denina and the BlkChain.
In February 2022, I launch the Known Origin adventure of the 1mA Collective during the Black History Month through my DANHOME Collection (exhibited in April at the NFC Summit in Lisbon) before being part in March of the 1st Digital section for ART DUBAÏ 2022 with Cyber Baat (« Sacred Roots » show curated by Ayesha Kazim and Kenza Zouari). I presented « Ambiance », my second piece about the Ganvié city in Benin.
Since, I was very pleased to participate end March at the « I See Red » exhibition curated by Ameni from Cyber Baat for the Art Fair Philippines 2022. « Ancestral Strength » celebrates the red color with my cultural references.
From the 11th June to the 12th September, I was part of the 1st NFT Event for the Dakar Biennale 2022 with 55 artistes from all over the Africa and beyond. I present « Dance Zangbetor » (15% go back to the Community).
