Biography

Photo Boris Anjel ANJEL (Boris Anje)
Born in 1993 in Bamenda - Cameroon
Lives en works in Douala - Cameroon 

After finishing his baccalaureate in 2012, he managed to enter the Foumban Institute of Fine Arts (Cameroon). His studies allowed him to make contact with famous local artists such Hervé Youmbi and Jean-Jacques Kanté and also with the Contemporary Art Center "Les Ateliers Sahm", where he met the "Dandies". In 2015, he obtained a professional licence in drawing-painting (IBAF) and in 2018 a Master. Actually, he poursuits his artistic research and creations. Some of his artworks entered yet in major art collections such as the permanent collection of the World Bank in Washington. 
His work and creations are centred on the intimate relationship linked with the concept of dependency. “My artistic work arises from the intimate relationship linked with notions of dependency. A force of attraction that generates a fictitious bond between two random things. I'm interested in producing pieces that function like a mirror for introspection. From an aesthetic point of view, I engage in the metaphoric relation of the elements that are interposed and transformed. My work becomes a kind of interrogation and presentation of the realities of dependency, knowing that to reject all dependence is to elevate man above being."

His favourite themes relate to social matters, the subjects of said taboos. Curious and interested in everything he sees, he uses different artistic disciplines such as painting, drawing, video and digital art in general. In his creations, the artist exteriorizes his thoughts: for him art is liberating and allows him to go forth and encounter others, hide his shyness and feel fulfilled. In the exhibition "Extravagance" to be held in October-November 2018 at the OOA Gallery, ANJEL's work depicts subjects who are addicted to fashion, labels, and the need to pretend to be what they are not. “In this consumer world, the desire to feign imposes itself as a human need, as a catalyst of our life, making us believe that it makes us superior, that it allows us to elevate ourselves within society”.
