BOB-NOSA

Biographie

Image Bob Nosa BOB-NOSA
Né en 1974 à Edo (Nigéria)
Vit et travaille à Lagos (Nigéria)

Empruntant les techniques du street art, comme le collage et la peinture en spray, Bob-nosa s’exprime par la satire et la parodie, une forme d’activisme social afin de provoquer un changement et une transformation dans son propre pays, le Nigéria, mais également sur le continent africain et même au-delà.

Son art est inspiré par la notion d’inhumanité; l’artiste appartient à un groupe minoritaire d’artistes contemporains qui critiquent ceux qui nous gouvernent. C’est pourquoi il a appelé son studio de travail: “Protest Art Studio”. C’est l’endroit où il crée des oeuvres qui commentent les aspects poliques et sociaux qui l’affectent. Afin de trouver des solutions aux problèmes de la population la plus vulnérable, ses thèmes de prédilection souvent universels traitent du vice, de la corruption, de l’extorsion, du meurtre, de l’immigration illégale, de trafic humain, de violence, de travail des enfants, de violence conjugale, de haine et de guerre. Dans un système de décadence sociale, Bob-nosa fait appel aux artistes afin qu’ils deviennent de manière consciente des agents du changement.

L’élection de couleurs intenses primaires appliquées par de grands mouvements incluent fréquemment du collage d’images provenant de magazines et de matériaux récupérés dans les rues de Lagos, Nigéria. Les surfaces sont égratinées avec des textes écrits et de la peinture appliquée à la bombe spray.

Né à Bénin City au Nigéria en 1974 et ayant étudié les Beaux-Arts à l’École Polytechnique Auchi (Nigéria), au début ses oeuvres ont été beaucoup critíquées pour leur simplicité infantile et pour son obsession à présenter des politiciens corrompus ou des situations sociales odieuses. Depuis 2012, son travail est reconnu par la critique non seulement en Afrique (Nigéria, Cameroun et Afrique du Sud) mais également aux Etats-Unis, au Royaume Uni et en France.
