Artist: Rouama Kouka Gildas
Title: ‘Untitled’

Kouka presents a group of people all in a similar, frontal, universal similarity of pose and expression. But individually each person has a different pose, colourful dress, and expressions in the details. This is a view of humanity that holds diversity in unity, solidarity in trust. It is a picture of hope and joy from an observant and generous heart.
