Who's that Girl, EV 10/16, 2020

"Who's that girl" is part of a series of works created during a stay at Atelier le Grand Village in summer 2020. These works come after a very particular period, the lockdown. The artist explains: "We were suspended in time for several months, and that’s when I decided to reevaluate the importance of colour in my work. Colour is emotion. There is a search for emotions that I wanted to interpret.

The choice of bright colours for this series represents an explosion, a desire to live, to go beyond. The gesture of tearing the paper to create the motifs can be seen as a rupture and a desire for a new start. These portraits all have big smiles on their faces. It is always a message of hope that I try to convey.

The characters represent not only a person but a family, a community and a society. I hope for a society that lives in harmony and seeks to share things together; emotions, joys and even fears. This ability to live together requires work but it always starts with a point or a line. This is where my interest lies."

Evans Mbugua

Evans Mbugua was born in 1979 in Nairobi, kenya. He lives and works in paris, France.

His artistic vocabulary is richly colourful and aims to foreground differences and similarities through the use of repeated pictograms. Recently Mbugua created a body of works at Atelier Le Grand Village – a studio that focuses on stone lithography.  "The portraits I paint represent people who are close to me in one way or another. They can be long term relationships or individuals I’ve just met in different places and with whom I spent some pleasant moments. I simply want to keep a memory of these encounters which then constitutes an archive of the best moments of my life. For the portrait, I always start with a dot and it is an accumulation of dots that will vibrate together so that the portrait can be seen on the plexiglass. The starting dot represents an individual and it is the accumulation of these dots that will create the portrait."

Atelier le Grand Village has participated in several exhibitions around the world particularly in France, South Africa, Sweden, Portugal and the United States. All works produced at the studio are registered with the Bibliothèque Nationale de France. Works created at the studio are in collections with the Albertina in Vienna, the Bibliothèque Nationale de France, the IZIKO South African National gallery and the Victoria & Albert museum in London.

In October 2019, Atelier le Grand Village was invited to the leading art fair dedicated to African art -1.54 Contemporary African Art Fair - London, as a special project by presenting works from Diane Victor, Bambo Sibiya and Mongezi Ncaphayi.
