Felix Fokoua: Drawing to success

Committed to drawing since his early childhood, the pencil of our day’s contributor, blossoms in the valorisation of the black African culture.

Felix Fokoua is his name. Drawing has always been his journeyman, to the point where this young Pan-African born in the West Cameroon cannot remember the first time he held a pencil. He started with one and now, works with a computer.

In a continent where art is despised at, and the artist considered a "failure", Felix feel fortunate to have received the support of his family, to which he remains indebted. After his studies, the artist inspired by Joëlle Ebongue (Elyon's) who signed a successful 3 volumes comic book, Georges Pondy, Yannick Deboue and Reine Prisca devoted himself full time to his passion. He immediately assigned himself a duty, put his talent at the service of the valorisation of Africa’s millennial cultures. "My goal is to present a magnificent Africa through a series of illustrations inspired by everyday life," he says.
