(Qty: 1)

Notes:

Originally from Nkongsamba in Cameroon, Joël Mpah Dooh currently lives and works in the coastal city of Douala. He studied at the Conservatoire Municipal des Beaux-Arts of Amines in France. His work, mostly abstract figuration, is delivered with a dose of implied naivety and humour. As an artist, he straddles between drawing and painting, frequently scratching on aluminium or corrugated iron to express his imaginative use of colour. He exhibited in the 2006 Dakar Biennale of African Contemporary Art in Senegal and his work has been featured in prominent solo and group shows across the continent of Africa and in Europe.

Sold for R68,280
