Inspired by life events which led him to move from Cameroon as a young teenager to the USA, Ludovic Nkoth’s work is a personal investigation into his own view of Africa; his family history, and the cultures, traditions and ideas of Africa and its diaspora pre- and post-colonialism. Working briskly with acrylic on canvas and calling his practice a dance, Nkoth states “while working on these pieces I’m moving at a fast pace to the rhythm of the music. It allows my instincts to just take over and not overthink my next moves.”
Nkoth undertook his BFA at the University of South Carolina, Columbia and his MFA at Hunter College, University of New York. Recent group exhibitions include Knock on Wood, Hunter College, New York (2019), and ArtFields 2018 Regional Juried Competition, Lake City, (2018).
