An autodidact by nature, Boris Nzebo began his artistic career by painting signboards for hairdressers. He then decided to pursue his art full-time along an original path: the exploration of hairdressing in the urban environment – styles, impact, senses and reactions. Through those, he says, he can see social stratospheres, mindsets and cultural acceptance.
Lately, Nzebo’s work tends to be more socio-politically driven, with references to corruption, oppression and violence against the masses. His work is often exhibited in Cameroon, England, France, Switzerland, Brazil, Haiti and the USA.
