Pascale Marthine Tayou

The Ghent-based Cameroon-born artist Pascale Marthine Tayou (1967) is part of a generation of African artists who tackle post-colonial issues by mixing the experiences they have of their countries of origin with those they have of the western world. His multi-facetted work is imbued with the many shifts between these different geographical contexts: “Pascale Marthine Tayou is a nomad in his life, in the materials he uses, in his artistic sources, and in the way he thinks”, observed the art critic Roberta Smith in a recent article in the New York Times.
