Born in Nkongsamba, Cameroon in 1966, he now lives and works in Ghent, Belgium and Yaoundé, Cameroon. His work is characterised by immense variability: it is mobile, heterogenous, falling outside of pre-determined patterns.
Starting with the transformation of his name to the feminine version, the artist has embraced duality as a means of evading identification and definition. His work is always closely linked to the idea of travelling and of coming into contact with that which is different to oneself.
