Biography Romuald Hazoume
Born in Benin artist Romuald Hazoumè visited in his hometown of Porto-Novo, a French lycée and has always been so between two worlds. European Education and African tradition characterize him. Also in his work, this synthesis reflects. His masks from jerry cans, and the Western civilization garbage were already on display at Documenta 12 in Kassel. In his painting magic signs and symbols of spiritual practice from West Africa are the main theme. He uses mainly simple natural materials such as sand, soil and dust, often cow dung, which he anmischt its colors. So also here where tradition and modernity together. To ensure the proper handling of the meaningful symbols and not to stand next to them, Hazoumé signed his works never on the front.
