Starting January, RWC’s walls will be embelished with beautiful paintings by various African and African based artists that will rotate and change every two months. The first exhibition curated by the interior design consultancy Blueprint Africa is called “Force de la Nature”, introducing pieces from the last serie of the Ivoirian artist Justin Oussou.

Justin Oussou is a prolific Ivorian painter, born in 1965 in the region of Anyama, his works have been widely exhibited throughout the years. This new series which translates to Forces of Nature, is reflection of the romantic but sometimes tenuous relationship between man and the earth. Justin Oussou holds a formal degree in visual arts from L’Ecole des Beaux Arts d’Abidjan and currently teaches graphic design at the University of Cocody in Abidjan. The philosophy behind his aesthetic consists of creating a sort of intimacy, complicity and permanent contact between the materials he is using the subjects he is painting. Over his 30 years as a painter, Justin has had the opportunity to participate in over 28 exhibitions globally including in Paris, Brussels, Pretoria, Israel and Dakar.
