illy Art Collection PASCALE MARTHINE TAYOU Gift Set 6 Cappuccino Cups
FeaturesFORMS, COLOURS AND INSPIRATIONS
A variety of forms typical of the artist’s work were brought together and used in this illy Art Collection. With its blend of inspirations from different places and cultures, Pascale Marthine Tayou’s art is a colourful, vibrant homage to a life filled with fresh possibilities. The objects, sculptures, installations, drawings and videos produced by the artist all share a common thread: they feature an individual making their way through the world and exploring the question of the global village. It is in this context that Pascale Marthine Tayou examines his African origins and the expectations related to them.
Born in Nkongsamba, Cameroon in 1966, he now lives and works in Ghent, Belgium and Yaoundé, Cameroon. His work is characterised by immense variability: it is mobile, heterogenous, falling outside of pre-determined patterns. Starting with the transformation of his name to the feminine version, the artist has embraced duality as a means of evading identification and definition. His work is always closely linked to the idea of travelling and of coming into contact with that which is different to oneself.
