Presentation

Born in 1959 in Dabou (Côte d’Ivoire). Lives and works in Abidjan.Nguessan Essoh, a graduate of the School of Fine Arts in Abidjan, received his artistic training away from the Vohou-Vohou movement. He is a student of Gerard Santoni, the master of mural art of the said school. Inspired by his master whose particularity was to paint the broad indigo blue and red bands of the Baoule fabric, Essoh, deeply attached to his African culture, proceeds by successive pours of colors on the canvas and tapa to obtain an embossed texture. This texture evokes the woven raffia, conferring prestige and dignity to the wearer. After having practiced figurative painting, N’Guessan Essoh makes a turn towards abstraction with a perfect mastery of chromatic scales. The originality of his writing comes from the tapestry of which he has kept the sense of velvet, the undulation and the rhythmic variation. Nguessan Essoh has his pieces in important public and private collections. One of his artworks is in one of the most prestigious VIP lounges of the Presidency of the Republic of Côte d’Ivoire.
