Pascale Marthine Tayou

Tayou was born in 1966 in Nkongsamba, Cameroon. After initially training as a lawyer, in the early 1990s he turned to art as a direct way of expressing his interest in and concern about the social, political and economic issues he observed in Cameroon. This sense of observation has travelled with him through the world and although he has stopped in Ghent, he now splits his time between Belgium and Cameroon.
