Historic Ellicott City, Maryland, USA
Presents New Work by
Ephrem Kouakou, “The African Picasso”
Opening January 2013 and ongoing - We are proud to present a large collection of new paintings by spectacular artist Ephrem Kouakou, one of the world\'s foremost African painters. Born in Ivory Coast, West Africa, trained at France\'s finest art academies, and now residing in Baltimore, Maryland, Ephrem\'s powerful, vivid paintings are in the collections of The Metropolitan Museum, New York, and the Smithsonian National Museum of African Art, Washington DC.
Ephrem\'s blend of indigenous African visual sensibilities, tribal folk art and Western technique is a rapturous dance of color and line. Inspired by his native culture, his bold imagery includes themes of fertility, brotherhood, the strength and power of women, and an understanding of
sacrifice, inward journeys, and spirituality.
