Alexis Daniel Onguene Tassi seeks to represent, like many artists of his generation, who at just twenty-six years of age, made their sensational entrance into the artistic creation of our continent. It is true that he has a master's degree in visual arts and art history, with a focus on painting, obtained just two years ago at the Institute of Fine Arts of the University of Douala in Nkongsamba; he shows a surprising mastery of his technique. He was distinguished and awarded at the age of twenty by the Jack Bell Gallery in London, who scrutinizes the most promising talents of contemporary African art, thanks to a competition open to art schools on the African continent. He continued his journey, exhibiting several times in the best galleries in Cameroon, including the MAM Gallery in 2017 under the curatorship of Simon Njami. The present exhibition at the Out of Africa Gallery is the first real exhibition of Onguene’s work on the European continent.
