Lives & Works in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire
Pascal Konan is a painter whose work is a reflection on the distinctions between the inner and outer self; he uses his relationship with space as a source of inspiration. In Konan’s work, the African street serves as a metaphor for an identity that is in continuous movement, where the physical, private, and public spheres are in constant flux and often overlap.
Konan has received several awards and distinctions. In 2012, he won the UEMOA prize at the 10th DAK'ART Biennial. In 2014, Konan was awarded the Christian Latier prize by the European Union, which enabled him to carry out residency at the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris.
Pascal Konan will be presented by 193 Gallery.
