French-born visual artist Vincent Michéa has made his mark in the art industry as a master image manipulator. In creating photomontages, Michéa uses simple and common tools to construct sensitive images that are charged with extreme tensions.
“I cut, I slice, I make incisions, I snip, I slash, I hack off, behead, I dismember… “-Vincent Michea
He is able to combine pieces of the past and present to create a new visual concept. With the intention to explore the notion of rewriting an image, Michéa uses the human figure and bright colours to cover a vibrant and uplifting African iconography.
Vincent Michéa's work is part of several international collections such as Agnès B, Paris (France), Saatchi Gallery, London (United Kingdom) and Mohamed VI Museum, Rabat (Morocco). He was also featured in Pangaea : New Art From Africa and Latin America at the Saatchi Gallery in London in 2014, and in Vivre !! La collection Agnès b. at the National Museum of History of Immigration in 2016.
