studio Boris Nzébo, photo by Marjolijn Dijkman

On several canvases and drawings Boris Nzébo combines portraits with typical urban vistas from his city, Douala. He is inspired by a fascination for beauty culture and global pop culture, but also by his background as a poster artist for the countless small hairdresser’s shops — hubs of desire due to their celebrity photos and improvised international chic.
