Peres Projects is pleased to present Studio Ekwe’s, a solo-exhibition by Ajarb Bernard Ategwa.
Ajarb Bernard Ategwa’s work explores the fast changing urban landscape in his native Cameroon. The large format of Ategwa’s paintings mimic the scale of cityscapes and public spaces, while his vivid color palette and graphic style speak the language of advertising familiar to inhabitants of Douala, Cameroon’s largest city and economic capital. Ategwa’s painting style is based on complex line drawings on canvas, which are executed free-hand. They imply a movement and momentum reflective of his rapidly transforming city. Recent solo-exhibitions include Peres Projects, Berlin; Espace Doual’art, Douala; and Jack Bell Gallery, London.
