Creating a visual contrast between realistically rendered individuals and abstract, logo-loaded, coloured backgrounds, Anjel makes paintings that provide spirited insights into his stylish models, while simultaneously pointing out the pervasive influence of consumer culture. Anjel readily acknowledges the Pop culture influence of Andy Warhol—especially in his employment of silkscreen—and his admiration for the way such painters as Fahamu Pecou, Amy Sherald and Kehinde Wiley treat the Black body. Before he had completed his Masters in Drawing and Painting from the Institute of Fine Arts Foumban in Cameroon in 2018, Anjel had the opportunity to be an artist-in-residence at the prestigious Les Ateliers Sahm, Brazzaville, in 2016. Fascinated by the dandies (Sapeurs), he made them the primary subjects of his vibrant paintings. Anjel’s work has been shown in group and solo shows in galleries and art fairs across Africa and Europe.
