About the Artist
Sesse Elangwe (b. February 25, 1994) is a Cameroonian visual artist from the region of Buea, he currently lives and works in San Antonio, Texas. Sesse creates compelling paintings based on his digested response to personal and communal encounters, that reflect his cultural and socio-political environment. Drawing aesthetics from realism, pop art and surrealism, Sesse employs portraiture to critically document some of the conditions experienced by Africans and the African Diaspora globally. He invites his viewers into a forum of meaningful conversations that challenge the status quo.
Sesse is a self-taught artist, who has been practicing professionally for over eight years. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Political Science from the University of Buea, Cameroon. He has participated in over 20 exhibitions that span four continents: Africa, Europe, North America, and Australia.
