Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Pascale Marthine Tayou was born in 1966 in Yaoundé, Cameroon and is one of the leading contemporary artists from the continent of Africa. Originally a lawyer, he began his career as an artist in the 1990’s, giving himself a new double name in the female form Pascale (e) Marthin (e). He left Cameroon to set up a base in Belgium but has described himself as a traveler. This nomadic aspect of his life deeply informs the work he produces, which often explores thoughts connected to human environment, travel, identity and shared meaning across cultures. Tayou’s work spans a wide range of media, including drawing, sculpture, installation, video and collage and the materials he uses are varied; from found objects such as plastic bags and dolls to things with geographical and cultural references, like fruits, masks, feathers from Africa and pins, pearls and Belgian lace. Tayou’s work has been featured in numerous leading International exhibitions, such as the Biennials of Istanbul (2003), Lyon (2005), Venice (2005 and 2009) and Dak’Art, Senegal (1996). His work has been championed by prominent curators such as Nicolas Bourriaud, who in 2002 gave him a solo show at the Palais du Tokyo and selected him for the Altermodern Tate Triennial in 2009, and Okwui Enwezor, who included him in Documenta 11 (2002).
